Following the release of their new song “Shake // Those Feelings,” (2/3 of) the Brooklyn trio talks the best spots in Brooklyn
Last week, we were stoked to premiere the new video for Moon Kissed‘s “Shake // Those Feelings,” and now we’re psyched to share the band’s go-to spots. We provided the categories and Emily and Khaya shot us over their faves via email.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR FAVORITE…
EMILY: Muchmore’s for many reasons…
KHAYA: I think i have to go Union Pool… so many belligerent memories there with the courtyard and the taco truck and the stage feels like an old magic show
EMILY: I used to live down the block from Rebecca’s. It’s that kinda spot you go to get wrecked at and dance. They usually play heavy ’80s music which is the beessstttt!!! Even if it’s a slow night someone is always down to hangout and talk at that bar
KHAYA: Oooo so many for diff reasons! Gold Sounds for pool and weirdness, Carmelo’s for running into people you never wanted to see again, Boobie Trap for the free hair ties and lighters and man bun bottle deal, and Birdy’s for obvious dive bar vibes.
EMILY: Hmmm i go to a lot of different ones but I used to live by the one off the Myrtle M and I’ve had many sammies and chopped cheeses from that spot.
KHAYA: Mr. Kiwi’s off myrtle has the cheapest beer
EMILY: Swallow Cafe off the Morgan L has the best cozy vibes.
KHAYA: IC Brooklyn Cafe. the people who work there are so lovely ◡̈
EMILY: I think I’ve only been to Tina’s hungover but it is definitely the best place for breakfast. Also, every time I’m there, “The Price Is Right” is usually playing on one of the TVs which is kinda soothing.
KHAYA: Yeah I second Tina’s!!! Diner food and vibes for reasonable prices.
EMILY: Brooklyn Botanic Gardens at Prospect Park is definitely my favorite. CRAZY FLOWERS!!! They also have an indoor desert. Also, cherry blossom trees. BONSAIS!!!! Literally all of the things.
KHAYA: McCarren. Great people watching. I went there to read and do nothing most days this summer.
EMILY: Ako. It’s the best sushi I’ve ever had.
KHAYA: Bunna Cafe. Or Roberta’s.
EMILY: Rotten Island Records.
KHAYA: Gotta go Rough Trade. I love the independent community but Rough Trade just feels like a theme park.
EMILY: Sunlight, a coffee, and turkey, lettuce, tomato, provolone cheese, and mayo on a roll.
KHAYA: If physically possible, a long walk
+ ARTISTS’ CHOICE. ANYTHING ELSE YOU LOVE?
EMILY: Go to Doner Kebab right next to Turk’s Inn.
KHAYA: I guess this is Ridgewood but Queens Brewery is a haaaang.
