NYC native Greta Kline began writing songs under the pseudonym Frankie Cosmos in late 2011. Kline’s songs are short and melodic, each poetically telling her story. Her songwriting is inspired in part by Arthur Russell, Connie Converse and poet Frank O’Hara.
Unstoppably prolific, Kline began self-releasing a steady stream of home recorded albums on Bandcamp. In 2013, Kline began to focus more on performing and recording with the help of her newly formed 4 piece band. Kline’s years of songwriting and production culminated in the recording of her first studio album Zentropy, released in 2014. Her debut was met with critical acclaim, gaining her a Rising feature from Pitchfork and ranking as the #1 pop album of the year by New York Magazine.
Frankie Cosmos’ upcoming EP, Fit Me In, is a one-off experiment in “fitting” Kline’s songwriting into an electronic sound, characteristic of current pop culture. The EP is a collaboration with Aaron Maine of Porches, who produced the songs using mostly electronic equipment in place of the live band instrumentation. Frankie Cosmos’ forthcoming full length album will be the first made with four band members and is slated for release from Bayonet Records in 2016.
