Wellington, New Zealand
Handsome Tours and Oldies are excited to announce the New Zealand headline debut of Snail Mail.
Snail Mail (aka. Lindsey Jordan) is on the brink of something huge - and she’s only just graduated high school. Her voice rises and falls with electricity throughout her debut album 'Lush'. Met with universal acclaim, the record has been hailed by Pitchfork as "emotionally wise, musically clear, and encompass[ing] the once and future sound of indie rock."
Growing up in Baltimore, Jordan began her classical guitar training at age five, and a decade later wrote her first audacious songs as Snail Mail. Around that time, Jordan started frequenting local shows in Baltimore, where she formed close friendships within the local scene, the impetus for her to form a band. By the time she was sixteen, she had already released her debut EP, 'Habit', on local punk label Sister Polygon Records.
In the time that’s elapsed since 'Habit', Jordan has graduated high school, toured the US and released her debut album 'Lush' on Matador Records; home of indie luminaries Car Seat Headrest, Kurt Vile and Pavement.
Don’t miss the chance to see Snail Mail on her first tour of New Zealand in March 2019.
