Snail Mail has covered Superdrag’s “Feeling Like I Do” for Spotify Singles.
On the cover, Snail Mail offers up her own take on the band’s 2002 Last Call For Vitriol track. Snail Mail’s cover revolves around gritty guitars, powerhouse percussion, and slack rocker vocal lines. In addition to her cover of “Feeling Like I Do,” Snail Mail has also offered up a new rendition of her Valentine track, “Headlock.”
“So a typical day in the studio for me has been really different from album to album,” Snail Mail explains. “But the approach I’ve taken more recently is to flesh out the demo as much as possible before bringing the song into the studio so I can work out the details by myself. I work incredibly slowly and don’t like to be under too much pressure while trying to be creative. I like taking lots of breaks and giving the songs room to breathe before continuing to work on them. So I try to spend a lot of time in the studio. It’s also super important for me to take breaks, to eat good food and get air. It can be really mentally draining work, so it’s important to adjust according to how you work as an individual.”

“I think that the Spotify version of Headlock is different from the original version of Headlock in that the original was recorded almost two years ago, and the more I performed the song, the more I think of ideas that I wish I had put into the original. This version gave me the opportunity to implement some of those ideas,” Snail Mail adds. “The ideal listening environment for my Spotify Singles are in a dark wet cave.”
