Half Waif

Half Waif began in 2012 as a vehicle for the thoughts, stories and songs of Nandi Rose Plunkett. Since then, alongside bandmates Adan Carlo and Zack Levine, Half Waif has created a powerful sound, both immediate and experimental — song structures shift and interlock underneath swells of synth, with surges of percussion and undulating melodies carried by Nandi's rich vocals. Lyrically, Half Waif traverse complex emotional landscapes. Influenced by Nandi’s Williamstown, MA 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.”
