Frankie Cosmos releases new video

Frankie Cosmos Extends World Tour, Releases New Video for "Sinister"

Greta Kline AKA: Frankie Cosmos and her band are about to embark on another round of US tour dates including a homecoming show at Bowery Ballroom on August 6th. Frankie Cosmos has also just dropped the video Sinister” another track off her latest release Next Thing.

From Kline: “The music video for Sinister was made by my friend Eliza Doyle, who is a video artist. Eliza had been working with Don Martone (the bodybuilder) on a movie called True Barbarian and she thought he’d make a good alter-ego for Frankie, wanting to play with the idea of fragmentary personas. I relate to the idea because for me it’s about having very different sides to myself, and needing those different personas to accept each other / co-exist”.

Greta Kline’s musical output as Frankie Cosmos exemplifies the generation of musicians born out of online self-releasing. Kline initially built a reputation with her prolific catalog of bedroom recordings and as a performer and advocate of New York’s All Ages DIY scene. The beauty in Kline’s writing does not lie within immense statements and large gestures, but instead can be found in her ability to examine situations and relationships with heartbreaking sincerity. In 2014 Kline released her first studio album, Zentropy.

In 2015, Kline signed to Bayonet Records, immediately releasing the Fit Me In EP where she experimented with writing in an electronic setting. Frankie Cosmos then began recording their first full-band album appropriately titled, Next Thing. Like Zentropy, Kline approached Next Thing by fleshing out several old home recordings, and by writing half of the album from scratch.
