Guided by the short, sweet, and self-conscious guitar pop of singer/songwriter Greta Kline, Frankie Cosmos have grown from a prolific home-based solo project to a full indie pop group over the past decade.
A native New Yorker, Kline is the daughter of actors Kevin Kline and Phoebe Cates. She frequented local underground rock shows as a teenager, and began writing and recording her own songs soon after. Though she began uploading songs under aliases including Ingrid Superstar, Little Bear, and the Ingrates as early as 2009, by 2012 Kline had dropped out of college to focus on music and was playing shows and recording under the name Frankie Cosmos. She tapped into the quirky vibes of the SideWalk Cafe anti-folk scene, which had given birth to the Moldy Peaches a decade before, as well as the D.I.Y. ethos of K Records.
Her newest record, Vessel, out now on Sub Pop Records, is the 52nd release from Kline and the third studio album by Frankie Cosmos.
