Half Waif Announces New EP, Shares New Single ‘Big Dipper’

    Half Waif has announced the Ephemeral Being EP, sharing ‘Big Dipper’ along with the announcement. Following 2022’s Portraits EP, the 5-track effort arrives on May 31 via ANTI-. Listen to ‘Big Dipper’ below.

    “This is a song about looking for answers, and finding none, and looking again,” Nandi Rose said of ‘Big Dipper’ in a statement. “It was written at a time when I was feeling very stuck in my body and overwhelmed by compounding griefs. I was inspired by the Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh, who had just passed away, and his idea of continuation–how we are not bound by our forms. We continue on. ‘This body is not me,’ he said. ‘So laugh with me, hold my hand, let us say good-bye, say good-bye to meet again soon.’”

    Half Waif’s last album was 2021’s Mythopoetics.
