  • Frankie Cosmos – Vessel

    Frankie Cosmos - Vessel Frankie Cosmos – Vessel Vessel, the latest offering from Greta Kline’s alter ego Frankie Cosmos, clocks in at almost double the length of her debut Zentropy and could be considered her 18-track magnum opus. Her distinctive songwriting voice is enriched with the lo-fi indie-pop instrumentation of her bandmates - bassist/vocalist David Maine, keyboardist/vocalist Lauren Martin and drummer Luke Pyenson - to create a great record.
  • Frankie Cosmos – Interview 2017

    Frankie Cosmos - Interview - 2017 Frankie Cosmos – Interview 2017 Frankie Cosmos are the band of songwriter Greta Kline. After getting significant attention through her releases on Bandcamp, Frankie Cosmos have started to evolve into an extremely beloved group. Greta’s songwriting is very lo-fi, raw and sweet.

The group have recently signed to Sub-Pop Records and with a new album lurking in the distance, we had a chat with Greta before her Brighton show to talk about the band and her development as a songwriter.

The crowd weren’t particularly welcoming towards the band, drowning out them with conversation. Adding to this, the PA had blown and this, up against Frankie Cosmos’ gentle, twee lo-fi indie-pop, led to a barely audible set.
  • The Great Escape - 2016

    The Great Escape 2016 The Great Escape - 2016 Some Brighton Festival and Fringe and media types have over the years bemoaned the fact that The Great Escape (TGE) happens slap bang in the middle of the May festivities. It means that the on-going celebration of the arts is partially halted in its tracks while the new music juggernaut arrives in convoy from around the globe, taking over many of the city's venues and a few of its streets for three very long days. What it does however is perfectly compliment the sense of occasion. Yes, the festival programs a small number of excellent ‘contemporary’ shows, but in general it and the fringe are far more geared towards theatre, comedy, spoken word and ‘performance’. Like the concurrent Artists Open Houses, TGE is a distinct strand that is the veritable icing on the...
