Ever wondered what really happens when a band goes on tour? Well, in Frankie Cosmos's new video 'Being Alive', director Daniel Martin captures a mixture of live performance and behind the scenes footage of the band's 2016 and 2017 European tours. But touring isn't all it's cracked up to be as while performing as tiny little marionettes, the band gets abducted by an Irish Space Dog and get transported aboard his kennel space-ship. Watch the thrilling space odyssey now.
'Being Alive' is the latest offering from the upcoming Frankie Cosmos album Vessel, out Friday March 30 on Sub Pop Records via Inertia Music. This 18-track opus finds front-woman and bandleader Greta Kline's distinctive voice and songwriting quirks enriched by the musical sensibilities of her bandmates- bassist/vocalist David Maine, keyboardist/vocalist Lauren Martin and drummer Luke Pyenson, who all played a detrimental role in shaping the sound of the record.
Vessel is only another addition to the almost inconceivable number of songs Greta Kline has released since 2011. Born into the generation who has embraced the accessibility of the bedroom record, Vessel marks her 52nd release. Vessel marks her growth as a writer and a performer, moving on from the bedroom sound to create more complex music on a bigger scale to much larger audiences. This transgression can be heard throughout the new album, marking her third studio album by indie-pop outfit Frankie Cosmos, as she documents and explores the changes that have come as a result of the music she has shared with the world over the past half-decade, as well as the parts of her life that have remained irrevocable.
