When she’s not contributing keys and vocals to the New Jersey-based rock band Pinegrove, Nandi Rose Plunkett makes electronic music under the name Half Waif. Her most recent EP, form/a, is an assemblage of songs that combine elegant vocal harmonies, ambient atmospherics and driving synths. Hints of Celtic melodies and a New Age sheen float atop a heavy R&B influence. Her music simultaneously positions her as an avant-garde enigma and a full-force pop star. Fans of Austra and Susanne Sundfør are advised to add Half Waif to their regular rotation. Half Waif takes the stage on Wednesday, March 29, at ArtsRiot in Burlington. Hoan and locals Ivamae open.
