Snail Mail Goes Intimate With “Valentine (Demos)” EP

"You can kind of hear me crying in one of them," Snail Mail's Lindsey Jordan said. "Maybe two actually haha.”

Just shy of the two-year anniversary of Valentine, Snail Mail releases a five-track EP of intimate demos and unreleased tracks. The Rolling Stone-acknowledged guitarist announced the homage project in September via Instagram, sporting similar excitement.

Aside from thanking label Matador Records for the EP, Jordan thanked girlfriend Ella Friedman for creating the artwork. “Without further ado, here are the demo versions of some of the songs that would become integral to the making of Valentine,” Snail Mail’s Lindsey Jordan said in a press statement.

“A little over three years ago, holed up at my parents’ house in Maryland, with just a minilogue synth, an interface, a mic, and a guitar, I started working on writing my second full-length record. […] I prefer some of the demos to what actually came out on the record because of how intimate and solitary the process was. You can kind of hear me crying in one of them. Maybe two actually haha.”

The Valentine (Demos) EP sees Snail Mail’s Jordan rework her sophomore record. Laced with their signature indie rock flare, Jordan etches vulnerable takes on several acoustic ballads. Some of those ballads include “Light Blue” and “c. et al.”

The project’s promotional single, “Easy Thing,” is a relationship’s doomsday flanked with lullaby-like strings and soft flutes. Questions fill the space, replacing the normalcy of a chorus with spiraling insecurity. “Autumn was a blur to me too / Was I just a concept of clothing to you?” Her vocal fry beacons. “Down comes the torrential rain on the roof / ‘Cause I’ll be your fool forever.”
