Review: Frankie Cosmos Was Otherworldly At Brooklyn Steel
On May 17th & 2st, Frankie Cosmos joined Real Estate for a shoegazey and magical set at Brooklyn Steel. With hints of vaporwave fun and twee, playful melodies, it was a sweet show to dance and nod yer head to. And, both shows sold out! I could see why – the set list was on fire with plush tones and great vibes.
The band’s dreamlike quality is perfect for the new and cool venue, Brooklyn Steel (319 Frost St). The set felt low-key and intimate, which was perfect for their bright and vulnerable songs like “Fool” and “Sinister.”
The band’s playing is filled with purpose, but there’s enough playfulness to leave room for sound and exploration. It’s beautiful, but like emotions, the sound is meant to be a mix of intense meets breezy tunes. I love the structure of Cosmos’s music – the songs are short but meaty and powerful. Much like our experiences passing in the night.
