Half Waif share “Frost Burn,” expand tour
Half Waif (the art pop band led by Nandi Rose Plunkett who share members with Pinegrove) recently signed to Cascine for their new EP form/a, which comes out on February 24. The first single, “Frost Burn,” is now here. Nandi talked to NPR a bit about the song, and here’s some insight from their article:
The daughter of a refugee and the child of divorced parents, Plunkett says these identities — and the challenges they have wrought — influence her creative process and refract through her music. They’re audible in the Celtic and Indian influences on her songwriting, and in the endlessly exploratory, deeply introspective aspects that make Half Waif’s music so compelling.
The song’s got bold synths, Nandi’s voice is a force, and really just the whole thing is great. Check it out below.
Half Waif were already announced for the Brooklyn Indie Pop Prom, which happens February 25 at Brooklyn Bazaar with The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Sad13, Sports, and T-Rexstasy (tickets), and they since added many more dates.
Half Waif play Brooklyn once again on April 6 at Silent Barn. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (2/3) at noon. All dates are listed below.
Pinegrove also announced a tour (and some other stuff) this week.
