We’re really excited about Domino Kirke’s newly released EP, The Guard. This beauty may look familiar to you, since her sister Jemima plays Jessa on the hit HBO show, Girls. Domino is one of those girls whose style and air of confidence encompasses the true meaning of free. As soon as I listened to the tracks for the first time, I instantly fell in love with the sounds of her melodic voice. Her lyrics resonate with you and you find yourself thinking about them later in the day.
The song that spoke to me the most on the EP was “Out of Nowhere”. It is one of those songs that makes your mind wander. It’s like you’re in a car and lights are streaming past your face, but instead it’s your racing mind. It evokes deep down inside a feeling of wonder and excitement—a flood of memories dancing from one moment to the next. You put this song on and you are instantly intoxicated and transported to an internal world where you are overcome with emotions that really seem to come out of nowhere. Domino’s light and airy sound is perfect for those days when all you want to do is lie in bed and enjoy your daydreams.
