On Friday March 30th, Frankie Cosmos will release their Sub Pop debut, Vessel.  To celebrate the album’s release, they have shared a new video for their song “Jesse” which was directed by Loroto Productions and the band. As described by Greta Kline, “for the video for “Jesse,” we were inspired by ASMR and slime culture. We wanted the song to be paired with mesmerizing and satisfying imagery. It turned into a marathon of playing with toys and goo.”

Tuesday 22nd May – Kantine am Berghain, Berlin, Germany

Thursday 24th May – DOKbox, Ghent, Belgium
Friday 25th May – London Calling at Paradiso, Amsterdam, Netherlands

LP preorders through megamart.subpop.com will receive the limited Loser edition on blue vinyl (while supplies last). UK and European pre-orders of the limited Loser edition LP will be available on translucent blue vinyl from selected independent retailers (while supplies last).

What people are saying about Frankie Cosmos:

“Frankie Cosmos know how good it feels to acknowledge how epically, infuriatingly, beautifully helpless love can be.” [“Being Alive” Best New Track Review] – Pitchfork

“’Being Alive’ flutters like a heartbeat, careening in and out of heavy motion and rest.”
[“Being Alive” Track Review] – Stereogum

“The song has Kline wandering through apathy, thinking about the things she could’ve done if she’d had the energy or will, poking at her subconscious.” [“Jesse” Track review] – Noisey

“Kline has a keen, quick grip on the back-and-forth of modern uncertainty, swinging high from triumph to low-lit sorrow. It’s why she’s such a comfort to return to.” – 8/10 – Crack

“[Kline’s] anti-folk spirit remains alive on these 18 tracks, which range from 30-second sonic haikus to fully-fledged ’90s indie-pop duets.” – 7/10  Loud and Quiet

“While intimacy has found a large pop audience in the social-media era […] Kline’s disclosures are striking because they feel genuinely homespun.” – 4/5  Q Magazine

“Slight but powerful indie-pop” / “There’s great charm to these yearning tunes” – 8/10 Uncut

“Completely enchanting, it’s further proof that the band are one of the best”  – Wonderland
