"'Torches' opens with the terror of a world that burns, tempered by the cool reminder of an undying coast somewhere nearby," says Half Waif's Nandi Rose Plunkett. "It then imagines what happens when that lit darkness reaches you before you can reach the water's edge - when you come to feed off it, called by the scream of the open, endless road. It's probably not surprising that I wrote this song in the days immediately after Trump's election, driving through Texas on a stretch of highway."
The new Half Waif collection is co-produced with David Tolomei with mastering by Heba Kadry. The album - which follows last year's spectacular form/a EP (one of our favourite releases of 2017) and Probably Depths LP - is a record we're immensely excited about.
