New album, Lavender is out later this month.Nandi Rose Plunkett, aka songstress behind the trio, Half Waif, has revealed a solitary new single 'Back In Brooklyn' from her forthcoming LP, Lavender due out 29 April via Cascine. Nandi had this to say about their latest release:
“I wrote “Back in Brooklyn,” the third single from my band Half Waif’s new album, in the period when touring and making music became my actual profession for the first time in my life" explains Nandi. "In late August 2016, I quit my day job, packed up the Crown Heights apartment I shared with my partner, and committed myself to the road and to a life filled only with writing, playing, and thinking about music. Of course, that dream—once it entered our earthly realm of human bullshit—came with its own set of challenges.” she explains. Read the rest of the essay at The Talkhouse.Inspiration behind the writing of Lavender was drawn from Nandi's experience of travel and leaving home including the connections Nandi forged with the women in her family, Lavender was named after her late grandmother as a nod to the Lavender she'd pick from her garden.
