Frankie Cosmos' Friendship Guide: An Afternoon with Greta Kline

FUSE TV - Frankie Cosmos' Friendship Guide: An Afternoon with Greta Kline

If you were at Frankie Cosmos’ Bowery Ballroom show in New York City earlier this month, you may not have spotted Greta Kline (a.k.a. Frankie) bobbing up and down in the sweaty audience during Warehouse’s opening set, tears streaming from her eyes.

“I was just like, ‘Someone’s gonna see me, but I just don’t care,’” Kline tells me on a bench at The Cloisters museum at the northernmost tip of Manhattan. Even though she grew up a few miles away, she's only ever been to the Middle Ages art museum once before. After dropping off our backpacks at coat check, we rest our bums on the cool concrete, meant to replicate the material of a medieval mansion. As we gaze into a courtyard of ancient greens, we talk about both the intense and very dull moments of going on tour, which includes fangirling for her friends’ bands and making even more buds. She’s traveled around with her friends Eskimeaux, her boyfriend’s band Porches, and, most recently, Warehouse, her gritty, punk-rock Bayonet Records labelmates. "They’re so good,” Kline says with wide eyes and extra emphasis on the “so.”

After the April release of her critically acclaimed Next Thing—an album that prunes Kline’s everyday ponderings into a bouquet of songs about dogs, kissing and friendship—Frankie Cosmos has been hitting the road hard, kicking off a second round of shows in July and exploring Europe until mid-September. Kline's Bowery show is the last U.S. gig before she heads overseas, and understandably, she is stressed; as we walk around The Cloisters, she lists all the errands she needs to run, including getting an overseas phone plan and calling her bank.
