Domino Kirke 

Domino Kirke tells Billboard that her new song "Beyond Waves" "is about moving past that breaking point and into a clearing." The sister of GIRLS' star Jemima Kirke -- as well as the wife of Gossip Girl star and Mothxr frontman Penn Badgley -- is gearing up for the August 25 release of the track's parent album, which shares the same name. 

"Beyond Waves" is a bohemian-tinged folk-pop track, featuring dark, resonant guitars and sparse percussion layered underneath Kirke's vocals. The title track is just one of 11 songs recorded for the debut LP of the singer, which expands on the dreamy synth-folk sound of her 2015 EP Independent Channel. The Brooklyn native's upcoming album will explore Kirke's storytelling from the perspective of a mother who has many personal anecdotes to tell.
