Half Waif shares “Torches,” new album ‘Lavender’ out 4/27 via Cascine

Today, Half Waif has released “Torches,” a new track from their anticipated upcoming album, Lavender. Of the song, Nandi Rose Plunkett says: “‘Torches’ opens with the terror of a world that burns, tempered by the cool reminder of an undying coast somewhere nearby. It then imagines what happens when that lit darkness reaches you before you can reach the water’s edge – when you come to feed off it, called by the scream of the open, endless road. It’s probably not surprising that I wrote this song in the days immediately after Trump’s election, driving through Texas on a stretch of highway.” Listen here

Lavender was announced last month with a video for its lead single “Keep It Out,” which NPR said “tackles the relationship – between the self and others – with compelling introspection and striking emotional honesty.”

Lavender is available for pre-order now and due out on April 27th via Cascine. Limited edition LPs of Lavender will include a special photobook, featuring exclusive photographs corresponding to each song on the album. Pages are perforated and can double as photo prints, with song lyrics on the reverse.
