Half Waif unveils video + plays Silent Barn tonight (08.22)

Half Waif unveils video + plays Silent Barn tonight (08.22)

Bedroom-pop at its finest comes form Nandi Rose Plunkett, otherwise known as Half Waif. Her EP "Future Joys" is charming and artfully crafted. Plunkett’s voice - slightly reminiscent of Grace Slick and Kate Bush at once - is powerful but never belting, and it gets you right where it hurts, through melodies that defy genres. Her vocal layering makes for dreamy clusters and swells, which float on a dark and ambient soundscape that would make Brian Eno proud. See Half Waif live tonight at Silent Barn. Check the new video from single Wooden Horse below. - Paul Jordan Talbot
