We’re pretty sure that mood ring pop isn’t an actual genre, but Half Waif’s self-description does feel pretty spot on. The band is a Brooklyn trio spearheaded by Nandi Rose Plunkett’s flawless vocals and piano-led compositions (the Tori Amos influence is strong and readily professed by Nandi), along with the rhythm section of Zack Levine and Adan Carlo. Their version of pop is jazzy and, at times, a little disjointed in the best way possible, making excellent rhythmic use of a blend of acoustic and electronic instrumentation. They stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO to play some tunes and to talk a bit about how they found the sounds that make up their songs.

Featured song: “Turn Me Around” // Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.

Half Waif’s new record, Probable Depths, will be available May 2016.
