While touring as a member of the celebrated New Jersey band Pinegrove, Half Waif self-released two EPs and two albums – including a split 7" with Deerhoof, the Future Joys EP in 2013, as well as albums KOTEKAN (produced by Devin Greenwood) in 2014, and Probable Depths (produced by Zubin Hensler) in 2016.
In 2017, Cascine released Half Waif’s form/a EP – a collection of tracks that expand on her exploration of home. She explains, “there’s an inherent restlessness in the way that I write and think about sound. I’m the daughter of a refugee, and somewhere in me is this innate story of searching for a home. As a result, I have many – a collection of places that I latch onto, that inspire me, that fuse themselves to me."
