Half Waif announces new album 'The Caretaker'

Following on from her heavily-praised 2018 album 'Lavender', Half Waif has now returned to announce the details behind her next LP.

The new full-length 'The Caretaker' is her first since signing to Anti-Records, is being previewed by the new lead single 'Ordinary Talk', and is set to be released on the 27th March.

Speaking about her latest offering, singer Nandi Rose said, "Recognising your own ordinariness can be depressing, or it can be a relief. In Ordinary Talk, I wanted to honor and celebrate my ordinariness as an incredible tool for making me feel less alone. The song is a reassurance that feeling bad - or 'ill' - isn't something that needs to be corrected. There's a depth of experience that comes from feeling emotions at their extremes. And it is, in fact, this vivid, varied messiness that makes us human and ordinary. The corresponding video, written in collaboration with director Kenna Hynes, tracks the progression from isolation to communion as we move from a tableau of a troupe of strange courtiers to the neon lights of a good old house party. And as the song shifts and melts away, the cast of characters follows and looks outward: up toward the vast night with its unsettling drift of stars, over a vista of coffee cups and blue TV screens and folded t-shirts - the million tiny moments that define our days."
