She lives in Brooklyn, is a birth coach, and has a new blues-tinged album out in collaboration with Here We Go Magic. If you ask us, Domino Kirke seems like the most promising new character from her sister Jemima’s HBO show, Girls.
With a hauntingly gorgeous look, incredible name, and a rock star for a father, it’s no surprise that Domino seems poised for a musical breakthough this year. The music’s not bad either. Kirke’s upcoming collaboration with Here We Go Magic’s Luke Temple is out May 26th and is already wooing a few critics we admire. We asked this adorable songbird to share about a typical day in the studio in Brooklyn, and this is what she said…
Morning snuggle with my son, meditation, baths.
A jumpsuit of any kind/spandex.

Meditate, sit at the piano, write.
A locket my mother gave me.
