With her musical project Half Waif, Nandi Rose dives deep into the waters of artistic expression by layering evocative vocals and synths to create a powerful form of pop music.  

On Mythopoetics, Rose explores a full spectrum of sounds that sparkle with memorable hooks, otherworldly production and uplifting grooves. “This is the record I’ve been trying to make for 10 years,” Rose says.  

Previous albums The Caretaker (2020) and Lavender (2018) garnered acclaim  for their compelling journeys through solitude, desire and the search for independence. Half Waif declares a new chapter on Mythopoetics, a collection of  12 new songs - mythical stories that transcend time, each sung with a glorious contralto wrapped up in synths and electronic percussion, and her lyrical piano serving as the backbone.  

It is an essential reminder that we have the power to shape the stories we tell and the myths we make of our lives. This is music that you feel.
