Half Waif, the project of Nandi Rose, has returned with new song "Take Away The Ache", her third release of 2021.

"Take Away The Ache" follows last month's "Party’s Over" single that featured on a 7" single alongside January's "Orange Blossoms".

Rose says of the new track, "This is a song about the paradoxes of loving. How we ask the impossible of each other, how we promise what we can’t give. But I don’t mean this cynically - I actually find it quite remarkable. It’s kind of an incredible feat of imagination and will, the way we help each other transform our darkest moments into something bearable, like a game of make-believe. 'It’s not an ache,' you might say, 'it’s an ember.' And so together we stay warm by the fire of what we’ve created, lit by a sweet lie that makes it all okay for a while. To love is to believe in a kind of magic."

She's yet to follow up last year's The Caretaker album.

Half Waif's "Take Away The Ache" track is out now on ANTI-.
