You asked, we delivered: An interview with Snail Mail

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending the Pitchfork Music Festival along with a few other Radio Milwaukee team members. While we were there, our social team did a quick poll asking who you wanted us to interview. The overwhelming winner: Snail Mail.

As luck would have it, I lined up an opportunity to talk to talented singer-songwriter Lindsey Jordan, whose mesmerizing solo indie project graced one of the festival’s stages. Jordan made her initial mark as Snail Mail in 2015 at the age of just 15 years, quickly garnering a devoted following through her Habits EP. On her latest project, Valentine, she skillfully captures the intricate emotions of both loss and love, presenting a poignant exploration of heartbreak.

My luck wasn’t quite as good when it came to the weather, which temporarily shut down the festival and delayed Snail Mail’s performance. But I did connect with Jordan, who delved into her writing process, the current wellsprings of her inspiration and who she would send actual snail mail to.
