RIYL: Kate Bush, Lower Dens, Chairlift

Label: Cascine Records

Nandi Rose Plunkett, a touring member of the recently-buzzed Pinegrove, has been making lush synth albums under the name Half Waif for a few years now.  Similar to artists like Kate Bush and Lower Dens, Plunkett is first and foremost a songwriter.  Equipped with just an acoustic guitar or a sole piano, her songs could be just as powerful, but she dresses them up with orchestral arrangements, synth-laden soundscapes and drum machines.

Her 2016 full-length Probable Depths is a great example of her versatility, exploring space in her more minimal tracks and traversing festival-ready anthems in others.  Fans of Beach House and Chairlift will have plenty here to fall in love with.

The first 50 folks to order here new EP will get a bonus 12×18″ poster, and time’s a-wastin.  Get some.
