Event Description

The Music Industry program hosts Half Waif for a production seminar on Monday, October 22 at 7:00pm in One Drexel Plaza Studio One. Half Waif is the musical work of Nandi Rose Plunkett. Pitchfork called her most recent project, "A striking album of beautifully rendered and deeply layer synth-pop."

Nandi Rose Plunkett writes and records under the name Half Waif. Over the past six years, Half Waif has created a bold and unique sound that melds pop and folk songwriting styles with experimental production and arrangements rendered in electronic brushstrokes. Influenced by Nandi’s Western Massachusetts upbringing as the daughter of an Indian refugee mother and an American father of Irish/Swiss descent, Half Waif’s songs are forever searching to understand what it means to be truly “home.” The project has released two EPs and three albums, the most recent being 2018’s Lavender, released via Brooklyn-based label Cascine. Lavender is the band’s most ambitious offering yet, with 12 tracks that meditate on the meaning of grief, familial relationships, and the strength we find within us to redefine our personal apocalypses. Since its release in April, the album has received widespread critical acclaim, with Pitchfork calling it “ A striking album of beautifully rendered and deeply layered synth-pop” and NPR commenting that "Plunkett writes songs that travel profoundly inward - asking questions about who we are and how we relate to each other - over beds of electronic instrumentation that expand and recede like ocean tides." It’s that kind of reflection of nature that has led Nandi to relocate from Brooklyn to the Hudson Valley, where she finds inspiration in the nature around her every day. Maybe she’s found a home after all.
