Frankie Cosmos announce new album, Close It Quietly, share “Windows”: Stream

on June 18, 2019, 10:56am

Earlier this year, Frankie Cosmos released Haunted Items, a digital album rolled out bit by bit over a period of weeks. Now, the indie outfit are set to follow that effort up with a proper studio record, Close It Quietly. Due out September 6th via Sub Pop, the massive 21-track effort is being previewed with the lead single “Windows”.

Close It Quietly was recorded at Brooklyn’s Figure 8 Studios with co-producer and engineer Gabe Wax. Together with Wax, Frankie Cosmos took a new approach to record building, creating a “swirl of referentiality” in which sounds repeat themselves as motifs throughout the LP.

Our first taste of this comes with “Windows”, a crisp and unhurried examination of the slow shifts that occur in relationships. Co-directed by Eliza Doyle and Frankie Cosmos’ own Greta Kline, the track’s video reflects the theme by following Kline and her friend through a day’s journey. As they make their way to the beach, they constantly change their mode of transportation: running arm-in-arm, skitching a skateboard to bike, scootering across the bridge, and eventually a good ol’ fashioned SUV.

Watch the “Windows” video below.

Pre-orders for Frankie Cosmos’ Close It Quietly are going on now. Find the album art and tracklist below.
