Frankie Cosmos is continuing her never ending world tour, Greta Kline and the band are currently in Europe playing shows from the critically acclaimed Next Thing which was released earlier this year on Bayonet Records.

Kline and co have also announced they are extending their North American tour, they'll be hitting the road with Big Thief and Vagabond including a special homecoming show at Webster Hall. All tour dates are listed below.


Frankie Cosmos is also offering another video from the LP this time for the video for "Young".  Made by Eliza Doyle and features mother & daughter actresses, Bambi Marangio-Pitts & Kendelle Rose-Pitts, who have worked with Eliza on other projects. There's also a cameo of Kline's friend Zazie. Kline tells us "The video is about Star Quality in its various forms - and how it translates from person to person, generation to generation". 

Acclaim for Next Thing:

"Next Thing shows that as the group continues to grow up, Kline's clear-eyed observation and youthful disaffection only feel more vital." Rolling Stone

"Frankie Cosmos, led by singer Greta Kline, makes wonderfully light, breezy, sweet songs that are just delightful." NPR

"Frankie Cosmos manages to be both devastating and uplifting. The young indie musician's greatest talents lie in her lyrics; she's a wordsmith who's brevity hints at suppressed emotions beneath the surface...Next Thing is a gem that speaks to the soul." BUST

"Kline has created a perfectly insular work, one whose songs display a newfound textual richness while retaining their unkempt edges." Under The Radar

"Kline recalls the legible confessionals of Colleen Green or Kimya Dawson and the bright-eyed melancholy of Beat Happening or Cub, all while building from her greatest strength: being immediately and deliberately herself." SPIN

"This patchwork of tracks makes for an album that doesn't have much of a thematic through-line beyond the anxiety-ridden adolescence that Kline's songwriting naturally gravitates towards, but it does result in 15 songs worth of the sharpest, most accomplished Frankie Cosmos material to date." Stereogum

"On Next Thing, Frankie Cosmos stands tall as an individual in a sea of bland lo-fi dudes, unfolding 15 songs in the palms of her hands that are endlessly re-playable." Consequence of Sound
