Frankie Cosmos

Originally the solo project of prolific New York City-based songwriter Greta Kline, Frankie Cosmos has blossomed into a four-piece band including David Maine, Lauren Martin, and Luke Pyenson.The first studio release as Frankie Cosmos, Zentropy (Double Double Whammy), garnered wide acclaim upon its release, including New York magazines #1 Pop Album of 2014 and a Pitchfork Best New Track for Birthday Song. Recorded as a two-piece with Aaron Maine on drums, Frankie Cosmos began performing live as a three-piece with Aarons brother David on bass, and later as a four-piece with Gabrielle Smith on keyboard. The next studio release, 2015s Fit Me In EP (Bayonet), combined Klines honest, lyrically-driven songwriting with Maines affinity for synth-driven production, and earned the project another Best New Track for Young. Lauren and Luke joined the group in late 2015 on keyboard and drums, leaving Gabrielle and Aaron to pursue their personal projectsEskimeaux and Porchesand cementing the bands current lineup.The groups most recent release is the critically-lauded Next Thing (2016, Bayonet), which has been praised for memorable lyrics that are both clever and concise, deeply personal and widely relatable; beautiful three-part vocal harmonies that enhance catchy pop melodies; and increasingly sophisticated instrumental arrangements that reflect a rapidly maturing band continuing to grow. 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. The bands live show, honed during extensive touring of North America, Europe, Oceania and Japan, has also received glowing feedback for its mix of energy, intimacy and levity.In their off-time, the bandmates of Frankie Cosmos practice a variety of other jobs and hobbies including textile design, food journalism, massage therapy, cooking, mixed martial arts, reading, painting, and petting dogs.
