Jordan signed with Matador Records in September 2017 and released her full-length debut album ‘Lush’ on June 8 to universally positive reviews from music critics. Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Stereogum, Consequence of Sound, NPR, Thrillist have all placed ‘Lush’ as one of the best albums of 2018.

The FADER says her song “Pristine” is an “indie rock masterpiece.” Although her debut album was released in June 2018, she has already accumulated nearly 600,000 monthly listeners on Spotify, with songs like “Heat Wave,” “Pristine” and “Speaking Terms” well into the millions stream-wise.
