“Take Away The Ache” out now via ANTI-
Half Waif, the musical project of Nandi Rose, has shared a new single and accompanying lyric video entitled “Take Away The Ache.” The song continues a new chapter in Half Waif’s ever-evolving story and sound.
“This is a song about the paradoxes of loving. How we ask the impossible of each other, how we promise what we can’t give. But I don’t mean this cynically – I actually find it quite remarkable” says Nandi Rose. “It’s kind of an incredible feat of imagination and will, the way we help each other transform our darkest moments into something bearable, like a game of make-believe. ‘It’s not an ache,’ you might say, ‘it’s an ember.’ And so together we stay warm by the fire of what we’ve created, lit by a sweet lie that makes it all okay for a while. To love is to believe in a kind of magic.”
Half Waif delivers another consuming composition which echoes this standout beauty, reflected in the far-reaching voal notes and the fragile lyrics. As the keys and the brushes come into focus against the intriciate electronic elements, this immersive atmopshere welcomes the audience and captivates their full attention.
“Take Away The Ache” really is a powerful journey, the honest and reflective lyrics grip you, Half Waif allows intimacy to shine amongst a vast landscape, the outfit pours their heart into this compelling creation. Rhythmic and raw, this arrangement infuses the best of experimental elements with the most organic instruments. Sincerity ultimately cascades through this innovative single.
