The Future’s Here Today: Frankie Cosmos

frankie press image.jpgAmerican artist Greta Kline who records with her four piece band as Frankie Cosmos, makes gorgeous, sun-soaked, if bittersweet, garage pop songs which never outstay their welcome.

Having emerged from the DIY scene in Brooklyn, her clear, girlish voice makes some of her newer songs like Fool and Outside With the Cuties almost unbearably poignant.

Themes like love,isolation, pets,friends and forging an identity should chime with anyone who remembers the pleasure, pain and surrealism of being a young outsider trying to make sense of the vast and often bewildering world.

Following her triumphant shows at South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, her new album Next Thing is released on April 1st on Bayonet. Limited edition clear, white-specked vinyl copies will also include a free fanzine and lip balm- proper old-school.

A May tour follows across the UK and Europe with Porches.
