Snail Mail have shared their first new track since the release of Lush, and it is a cover of Little Joy’s “Evaporar.”
The band’s Lindsey Jordan and bassist Alex Bass have covered the track, which comes from Brazilian-American band Little Joy, who released only one album back in 2008. Little Joy is a side project made up of the Strokes’ Fabrizio Moretti, Los Hermanos’ Rodrigo Amarante, and Binki Shapiro.
Snail Mail’s cover to the track stays true to the delicate simplicity of “Evaporar,” as Jordan delivers silky vocal lines in Portuguese atop a soft, sweet instrumental. The accompanying music video is perfectly quirky, with random retro clips, scenes from anime, and shots of Jordan getting her nose picked.
