Orbitting around the songwriting of 22 year-old songwriter Greta Kline, Frankie Cosmos mine the everyday banalities of youth and marry them to elegantly constructed, deeply relatable meandering alt-pop ditties. Their songs are sweet and sincere, but they are not saccharine. They invoke long, lazy, youthful summers and the addictive awkwardness of first loves. Spin asserted that Kline "recalls the legible confessionals of Kimya Dawson and the bright-eyed melancholy of Beat Happening". Since then, Frankie Cosmos has blossomed into a four-piece band including David Maine, Lauren Martin, and Luke Pyenson, resulting in the globally acclaimed sophomore LP, ‘Next Thing’ (Bayonet Records/Secretly Canadian). The album received a coveted Best New Music designation from Pitchfork as well as exceptional reviews from the New York Times, Rolling Stone, and others.
Frankie Cosmos will be joined in Sydney and Melbourne by special guests, Wil Wagner (The Smith Street Band) and Body Type.
