Tracks like “What has Happened/What Will Happen” and “Love Her” in particular stand out for their pretty aesthetics.

Baltimore indie-rock act Snail Mail is playing Union Transfer on July 14th with DIY favorites Waxahatchee and Cayetana.

On "Red Eyes," the lyrics suggest aversion toward success: "It’s a shame /That you’re trading your ...
