NEWS: Half Waif announce new EP ‘form/a’ and UK tour dates

Half Waif, the alt-pop musical project of Nandi Rose Plunkett, has just signed to Cascine and will be releasing her new EP form/a on 24th February 2017.  The EP follows Plunkett’s touring schedule as a member of American indie group Pinegrove, and will continue to expand on the her exploration of home, which was touched on by her Zubin Hensler-produced album Probable Depths.

Plunkett explained some of the driving forces behind the new EP: “There’s an inherent restlessness in the way that I write and think about sound.  I’m the daughter of a refugee, and somewhere in me is this innate story of searching for a home.  As a result, I have many – a collection of places that I latch onto, that inspire me, that fuse themselves to me.  I’m sentimental, nostalgic – yet constantly seeking what’s next, excavating the sound of my past and coloring it to make the sound of my future.”

She continued: “I’m a child of divorce, fiercely loved but forced into independence at a young age; I rocket into relationships with the desire to find roots, commonality, to create stillness in the midst of public noise.  In this way, my songs are like the notes of a large scavenger hunt, clues pinned to trees I have known, or tucked under rocks on my path, urging the listener to keep looking a little deeper, because maybe they will find something special in the end.”

Watch a trailer for form/a below.
