Track Of The Day: Half Waif – ‘Ordinary Talk’

Following 2018’s critically acclaimed Lavender, Hudson Valley-based artist Nandi Rose, aka Half Waif, has now announced her upcoming new album.

Reflecting on the acceptance of finding the beauty in being like everyone else, ‘Ordinary Talk’ is filled with captivating glitchy hooks and rich soulful vocals that exude a stirring raw emotion, with shades of later Radiohead. A truly spellbinding slice of poignant alt-pop meditating on the heaviness of ordinary moments.

Of the track, Rose explains:

Recognizing your own ordinariness can be depressing, or it can be a relief. In Ordinary Talk, I wanted to honour and celebrate my ordinariness as an incredible tool for making me feel less alone. The song is a reassurance that feeling bad – or ‘ill’ – isn’t something that needs to be corrected. There’s a depth of experience that comes from feeling emotions at their extremes. And it is, in fact, this vivid, varied messiness that makes us human and ordinary.”
