Half Waif is Brooklyn-based Nandi Rose Plunkett, an electro-pop singer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist whose sound evokes lush landscapes and inventive influences. The prolific Plunkett has self-released two EPs and two albums, including 2016’s ornate Probable Depths, and will soon release Lavender, her Cascine Records debut, on April 27.
On the spectral and beautiful “Keep It Out,” Plunkett sings of isolation and longing against the backdrop of a failing relationship. “I’ll keep you out, so you never see me unraveling,” she warns over an elegant and minimal beat.
”’Keep It Out’ is a song about the evolution of the self in a relationship: the maintenance of autonomy in the midst of a process of coupling, aging, and decay,” Plunkett says.
