Lindsey Jordan, the talent behind Snail Mail, shared her thoughts on the EP, taking us back in time to the genesis of these songs.

What’s intriguing is Lindsey’s personal connection to the demo versions. She confessed, “I prefer some of the demos to what actually came out on the record because of how intimate and solitary the process was.” This sentiment speaks volumes about the raw, unfiltered essence of these tracks. It’s like getting to know the songs on a deeper level, hearing the artist’s emotions in their most vulnerable state. Lindsey even adds a touch of humor, mentioning, “You can kind of hear me crying in one of them. Maybe two actually haha.” This candid admission only adds to the charm of the EP, making it a must-listen for Snail Mail enthusiasts.
