Snail Mail have shared a new cover of Superdrag’s ‘Feeling Like I Do’ – listen to it below.
Released as part of Spotify’s Singles collection, the indie rock solo project of guitarist and singer-songwriter Lindsey Jordan has also released a new version of ‘Headlock’, a cut taken from Jordan’s 2021 album ‘Valentine’.
The original version of ‘Feeling Like I Do’ was recorded at the famed Electric Lady Studios in New York and appeared on Superdrag’s 2002 LP, ‘Last Call for Vitriol’. Jordan’s version hears her dig into lower register to match her crunchy guitar riff.
“It’s been really cool getting to cover ‘Feeling Like I Do’ by Superdrag because I love it and I’ve loved it for a while and I was able to make it my own by singing on it,’ she said in a statement.
The reason for re-recording ‘Headlock’ came down to simply living with the song for a while out on tour. “So a typical day in the studio for me has been really different from album to album,” Jordan said. “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.
She continued: “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.
“So 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.”
