It’s been almost a year since the release of “Lust,” the first single from Brooklyn-based Brooklyn Vegan.
And, in that time, Brooklyn Vegan has grown from a small Brooklyn outfit into a national force.
The song’s been featured on everything from the upcoming “Luther” to the “Frozen” soundtrack.
And it’s made the rounds in Billboard’s Top 40 list, earning the band a spot on the “10 Most Influential Artists” list.
But the success of the song, and the song itself, has also sparked a new question for Brooklyn Vegan: What if Brooklyn Vegan isn’t the only Brooklyn Vegan?
So we asked the band’s longtime guitarist and producer, Kevin Hulsey, to share his thoughts on what makes Brooklyn Vegan so special.
Kevin HULSEY: Brooklyn Vegan is really a Brooklyn thing.
I don’t know how else to say it.
We have this whole vision of Brooklyn and Brooklyn vegan, but Brooklyn Vegan was also an opportunity to get our act together.
And the song was the result.
I think Brooklyn Vegan’s been one of the most influential Brooklyn bands ever.
The way it’s written, the way it sounds, it really reflects the vibe of Brooklyn.
We want Brooklyn Vegan to sound like Brooklyn.
So we just kind of took Brooklyn Vegan and made it into our own.
And I think it’s really fun to do.
It’s just a natural evolution for us.
So when I listen to the new song, I’m like, “This is Brooklyn Vegan.”
I think we’re kind of living in Brooklyn.
I’m really excited about that.
I love that Brooklyn Vegan feel, I love the way the song is written.
I feel like Brooklyn Vegan will be a Brooklyn band forever.
[The band’s] got some big plans.
They’re definitely going to be in a big stadium at some point.
And that’s not a bad thing.
The band has also released a song, “The Real” as well as a solo album, “A New Kind of Brooklyn.”
You can stream both of them on Spotify.
“The REAL” is one of Brooklyn Vegan ‘s most famous songs.
The lyrics are about living life to the fullest and being grateful to the people that have made your life so special, and they’re just so beautiful.
It was a huge song for us to write and record.
It really captures the feel of Brooklyn so perfectly.
And there’s so much joy in the lyrics, and so much energy in the band.
But I think “The Fake” has the most emotional content.
And so the fans have been really amazing.
It has a really nice chorus, and it’s so uplifting.
But, yeah, it’s just another Brooklyn thing that has been really fulfilling for us and our fans.
It also speaks to Brooklyn Vegan being a Brooklyn family.
The video for the song’s “real” version is a gorgeous homage to the Brooklyn community, with the help of artist, Brooklyn artist, and filmmaker, Dina Gomes.
The “Real” version features a gorgeous backdrop of the Brooklyn Bridge and a backdrop of iconic landmarks, like the Brooklyn Zoo and the Brooklyn Museum of Art.
We also wanted to reflect the Brooklyn lifestyle, and how we want Brooklyn vegan to look and sound.
So the video’s got a lot of Brooklyn imagery and we wanted to capture that.
Dina has been working with us to bring out the Brooklyn spirit in this video.
I know what it’s like to live in a city where there are no people that look like me, no people who look like us, no clothes that fit you.
So I knew that it was important for us as Brooklyn Vegan artists to show that there is so much more to Brooklyn than being the best at what we do.
And we just wanted to do it.
I knew it would be fun to capture some of that energy in our video, and I also knew that the Brooklyn Vegan community was huge and passionate.
So, DINA GOMES: It’s a very Brooklyn thing to be Brooklyn Vegan, and a Brooklyn-ness that’s been so real.
But also, Brooklyn vegan is a Brooklyn tradition.
It comes from the very beginning.
When I was growing up, there was a Brooklyn Vegan music club in my neighborhood called The Diner.
So Brooklyn Vegan started as a club.
And Brooklyn Vegan people are always on stage.
They sing along to all our songs, they talk about everything.
And they really care about each other.
They are a real family.
And for us, the most important part of Brooklyn vegan was the family.
I was really blessed to be raised by a couple of my favorite musicians, who are the ones who brought me into Brooklyn vegan.
And when I was a kid, I used to hang out with all the kids from the neighborhood.
I would see all the girls from my neighborhood.
And if we didn’t have any clothes, I’d
