Following the release of her stunning new album ‘Lavender’, out now on Cascine, Half Waif has announced Autumn European tour dates and shared a reworking of “Back in Brooklyn” by Gigi Masin.
One of the many stand-out moments of ‘Lavender’, the stark simplicity of “Back In Brooklyn” encapsulates the earthy, poignant rumination and touching lyricism that sets Half Waif apart from the rest. Now, Italian composer Gigi Masin has reworked the track, swapping piano for pulsing electronics.

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 that’s designed to be both immediate and experimental — song structures that shift and interlock underneath swells of synth, surges of percussion and undulating melodies upon which ride waves of intricate vocals. Lyrically, Half Waif traverses complex emotional landscapes. Influenced by Nandi’s Williamstown, 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.”
Opening a new era for the project, this new album expands upon themes of travel and leaving home to include connections Nandi forged with the women in her family, and was named for her grandmother Asha – a nod to the lavender she would pluck from her garden and boil on the stove.
‘Lavender’ was co-produced by David Tolomei and mastered by Heba Kadry. It is available now via Casine - https://
