WHO: Frankie Cosmos - Off-beat singer-songwriting prodigy Greta Kline.
LATEST RELEASE: Next Thing (2016)
WHAT THEY SAY: "I think songs have to be really worth it if they’re going to be longer than a few minutes. It’s a millennial thing, I don’t know."
WHAT OTHERS SAY: "Inspired by K Records' offbeat ethos, Frank O'Hara's poignant poetry, and the infinite tapestry that is New York City, songwriting prodigy Greta Kline uses her music to chronicle life's little hurts, empowering herself in the process." - Pitchfork
"She’s known for being super-prolific; for years, she recorded songs in her bedroom, posting them on her Bandcamp page at the same rate other millennials posted selfies on Tumblr. Intuitively drawing a through-line from her own want to express herself to listeners’ want for sincere, off-handed experiences, she garnered a following." - Huffington Post
CREDNTIALS: Minimalist in approach and aestitic but flurries with emotion. Hot off the heels of thier debut album 'Next Thing'. Frankie Cosmos show no sign of stopping adding to their already extensive roster of intelligent pop material.
