Half Waif, the musical project of Nandi Rose, has unveiled a new single.

Cast across layered instrumentation and tender vocals, the captivating Orange Blossom follows hot on the heels of the Hudson Valley-based artist's 2020 LP 'The Caretaker'.

It'll be available as a 7" due out on February 24 via Anti-, backed by Party's Over on the flip side. Rose said:

"I wrote Orange Blossom soon after finishing 'The Caretaker', and in some ways, it feels like the next chapter in that story.

"In the fall of 2019, I found myself taking care of someone close to me who was struggling with addiction, and as a caretaker often does, I internalized that immense pain and took it on as my own. It's paralyzing, to feel so powerless when trying to help someone you love. The song came out like an incantation, a desperate plea to be rescued from wrestling with everything. But it unfolded into something more resolute as I refocused on the task of taking responsibility for myself and my own life.

"The song touches on a phrase that kept coming back to me at that time, which was: 'no one's going to do it for you.' You can help and be helped, you can love and be loved, but salvation is your own to seek and claim."
