Half Waif - the musical project of Nandi Rose Plunkett - has announced the release of a new EP along with details of a first European tour.
"I recorded it in my apartment earlier this year and am so overjoyed that it will be released soon through our new label family Cascine," Plunkett states of the release. "In this time of dredged-up darkness, we redouble our efforts to make art, to create something from nothing, to be architects of love and compassion."
"There’s an inherent restlessness in the way that I write and think about sound," she says of her music. "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."
"I’m a child of divorce," she continues, "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.”
Entitled form/a, the new EP is expected in February 2017. The outfit have teased the release with a new video, which you can watch above.
The band have also announced details of their first European tour. Beginning in London, the string of dates will see them perform four shows in the UK before heading to France, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Germany. A list of these dates can be found below.
