Greta Kline is a poet.
At the core of Frankie Cosmos is Greta Kline’s lyricism. She’s a poet, the kind whose words they argue about. Her narratives come equal part confessional and surreal. All the while they’re delivered in alluring voice, sold by simple conviction.
Vessel is a world which never entirely makes sense but feels right. With a solid backing outfit, there’s never a moment its narrative isn’t given emphasis or pushed forward by instrumental lattice. Clever lyrics, clever arrangements.
The result is a record which presents the group with sparkling clarity. Vessel’s preceding singles have led with the strong foot forward and everything else that’s here sinks in pleasantly around the sides. Dig it!
