Frankie Cosmos at The Aardvark

Handsome Tours & Bespoke Touring are thrilled to announce New York's FRANKIE COSMOS with special guests playing in Perth for one night only at The Aardvark!

Last in the Southern Hemisphere in 2017, Frankie Cosmos are making their second visit to Australia for Meadow Music Festival, as well as a trio of intimate headline shows around the country in March/April.

Originally the solo project of prolific New York City-based songwriter Greta Kline, Frankie Cosmos blossomed into a four-piece with a collection of globally acclaimed albums to their name. The group’s most recent 2019 offering, 'Close It Quietly ' is a continual reframing of the known. It’s like giving yourself a haircut or rearranging your room. You know your hair, you know your room. Here’s the same hair, the same room, seen again as something new.

'Close It Quietly' takes the trademark Frankie Cosmos micro-universe and upends it, spilling outwards into a swirl of referentiality that’s a marked departure from earlier releases, imagining and reimagining motifs and sounds throughout the album. Kline delivers sharp observations and candid confessions via short bursts of melodious indie pop that Rolling Stone labelled "the best yet from an artist who’s spent the last few years on one of the more impressive songwriting binges in indie-pop".

“An introspective land of scribbled poetic musings… a compellingly personal oral history.” -Under The Radar

“Close It Quietly is composed and meticulous in flow, flawlessly delivering reserved passion. 8/10” – Exclaim!

“…An aural square dance that’s well worth your time.” – PASTE
