Caretaker is the Anti- label debut for Half Waif, the project of Pinegrove keyboardist Nandi Rose Plunkett, and fourth album overall from the band (other members include Pinegrove drummer Zack Levine). Despite the label move, it's a follow-up both stylistically and thematically to 2018's Lavender, as it revisits themes of displacement, isolation, and connection. The act of being uprooted is a major influence and bittersweet legacy of the songwriter's family going back multiple generations: her grandmother was displaced following the Partition of India, and her mother was an Indian refugee from Uganda.
