(New York, NY): Today, exclusively via Billboard, soulful songstress Domino Kirke has released "Beyond Waves," the first single from her upcoming debut album of the same name.  The song is, “a bohemian-tinged folk-pop track, features dark, resonant guitars and sparse percussions layered with Domino's entrancing vocals,” (Billboard) and tells a deeply personal story - one of the struggle, and ultimate triumph, of Domino finding her own voice in her art.
Set for release on August 25th, Domino's debut record, "Beyond Waves" is more than two years in the making and is her most personal work to date.  Co-written with Luke Temple (Here We Go Magic), co-produced by Joan Wasser (Joan as Police Woman) and recorded jointly in Hudson, New York’s Future Past Studios and Brooklyn’s Strange Weather Studio, the album lavishly expands on the dreamy synth-infused folk rock of her 2015 EP, ‘Independent Channel.’ The 11-song body of work was engineered by Daniel Schlett (Modest Mouse, DIIV, Oberhofer) and Patrick Higgins (Z’s) and mixed by Bryce Goggin (Swans, Trey Anastatsio) at Trout Studios. 
Though it is the first single from her debut record, "Beyond Waves" was the last song that came together for Domino.  The instrumental, co-written by members of Here We Go Magic, became the perfect complement to Domino's soul-stirring lyrics, which tell the story of her evolution as a person and as an artist.  "Getting these words out," according to Domino, "was its own kind of medicine and a deeply personal attribution to my last few years."  Touching on the birth of her son, one of the record's most personal through-lines, Domino sings, "I had a child no one told me wasn't a toy".  This anecdote, amongst others, brings together the intersection of Domino's artistry, experience as a mother, and work as a doula with Carriage House Birth, all of which served as inspiration for her new album. 
Born into a family of creatives and artists, Domino has established herself as a prominent artist to watch.  A student of piano and vocal performance at New York's prestigious LaGuardia High School of Music & Performing Arts, she signed her first record deal as a teenager - collaborating with Grammy-winning producer and artist Mark Ronson (Adele, Bruno Mars, Amy Winehouse) - and toured the world with everyone from Gang of Four to Lily Allen with her band DOMINO, which was also featured in Lena Dunham's acclaimed film 'Tiny Furniture.' Deemed a "triple threat" by Vogue for her role as a mother, a doula and a musician, Domino also has received praise from Nylon, Entertainment Weekly, V Magazine, Broadly and more.
