Half Waif – Severed Logic

Cascine confirms itself as one of the most forward-thinking label in the music business even at the start of 2017. Their new signee Half Waif are the synth-pop project of Brooklyn based artist Nandi Rose Plunkett (Pinegrove) and Severed Logic is the first track to be taken from an upcoming EP, form/a,set for release on February 24th. Sparkling synth lines and exotic electronic percussions mark the track, while Nandi’s mesmerizing voice takes center stage drawing a smooth soundscape which it is impossible to resist

Speaking on the EP’s genesis, Nandi said: “There’s an inherent restlessness in the way that I write and think about sound. 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, 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.

Half-Wait’s EP form/a is available on digital and limited-edition 12” here.
