Basically, Frankie Cosmos reminds us that it’s ok to feel down sometimes via a cute pop song with a recorder.
A few months ago, Frankie Cosmos released a single from her upcoming album, Next Thing (Bayonet Records) which is released next Friday. The song continues with the full band that she worked with on her previous album, Zentropy, which fills out the song nicely while maintaining much of her DIY lo-fi feel. The song begins as a very simple pop song with a sparse band and just Greta’s vocals but soon builds with the addition of some swirling organ and harmonies in the chorus and then a recorder interlude. The lyrics in the chorus make reference to an Arthur who is apparently a New York anti-Folk artist from years back. It’s these little references that remind me how these songs are written about things I feel and understand too and that’s probably why I love Frankie Cosmos so much.
Next Thing is released on the 1st Of April and you can also see Frankie Cosmos live in the UK in May.
