Frankie Cosmos

September 27, 2019
Starting: 8:00 PM

Originally the solo project of prolific New York City-based songwriter Greta Kline, Frankie Cosmos has blossomed into a four-piece band including Lauren Martin, Luke Pyenson, and Alex Bailey. The group's output has been praised for memorable lyrics that are both clever and concise as well as deeply personal and widely relatable. Beautiful three-part vocal harmonies enhance catchy pop melodies while sophisticated instrumental arrangements reflect a rapidly maturing band that continues to grow. In addition, their LP, Next Thing, received a coveted Best New Music designation from Pitchfork as well as exceptional reviews from the New York Times, Rolling Stone, and others. Their forthcoming LP Close It Quietly is a marked departure from earlier releases, imagining and reimagining motifs and sounds throughout the album. The live show, honed during extensive touring of North America, Europe, Oceania and Japan, has also received glowing feedback for its mix of energy, intimacy and levity. In their off-time, the bandmates of Frankie Cosmos practice a variety of other jobs and hobbies including textile design, food journalism, massage therapy, cooking, mixed martial arts, reading, painting, and petting dogs.
