Frankie Cosmos announces Sub Pop debut, Vessel, shares lead single, “Jesse”: Stream

on January 11, 2018, 11:21am

Indie pop outfit Frankie Cosmos have announced a new album, Vessel, songwriter Greta Kline’s follow-up to 2016’s acclaimed Next Thing. The album is their first via Sub Pop, and also notable for incorporating the musical influence of Kline’s collaborators, colleagues, and full-time bandmates. The 18-track effort arrives on March 30th.

Hunter Davidsohn, who helmed Frankie Cosmos’ previous releases, returns for Vessel, which was recorded across six days in Brooklyn and Binghamton, NY. A press release notes the band eschewed digital recording methods for reel-to-reel tape, a move that encouraged spontaneity and resulted in many of the songs’ instrumentals being first or second takes.

The announcement of Vessel is accompanied by its first single, “Jesse”, a trim, wistful track that never seems to stop growing across its three minutes. Listen to it below via YouTube.
