Frankie Cosmos, the up-close and tender musical project led by singer/songwriter Greta Kline, released their Sub Pop Records debut Vessel late March , and now they’ve just released a third new song from that album, “Apathy,” which you can hear below. Like earlier singles “Jesse” and “Being Alive,” “Apathy” finds Frankie Cosmos stretching beyond Kline’s intimate singing to explore the DIY indie-pop sound as a full band.

The Band are having some fun with their videos. In their clip for “Jesse,” they messed around with the popular fringe YouTube video genres of ASMR and slime videos. Now they’re back with a video for “Apathy,” and it’s also pretty silly.

In the clip, directed by Tom Scharpling, a different band named Frankie Cosmos comes across the Frankie Cosmos that we know and love, so they go to one of their shows and meet them outside after, with the intent of intimidating them into changing their band name. Frankie Cosmos leader Greta Kline nonchalantly flips open her switchblade, and that’s the end of that conflict. Kline says that the video was a delight to make with Scharpling: 

With an interview, The new song Kline spoke about growing into her role as a professional musician, moving on from a pretty public relationship with Aaron Maine of Porches, and how maturity has changed her understanding of love songs she wrote as a teen.

Vessel (Release Date: March 30, 2018)
