New York band Frankie Cosmos are in a very productive mode. Since the release of their album Vessel in March last year they've released a bunch of singles, collectively titled Haunted Items, and have now revealed that they've got a new album coming this year. It's called Close It Quietly and comes out through Sub Pop on September 6th.

They've also shared a new song called 'Windows', with Greta Kline saying “This song takes place during the waiting period of healing, not knowing how to proceed or how to find the path to forgiveness. The inner versus the outer- learning to see yourself as part of the whole. For me the lyrics cover some of the slow movements of relationships, the shifts that occur in ways of thinking over time."

As is often the case with a Frankie Cosmos song, it starts in the simplest place, with Kline gazing out of the titular 'Windows', and then spins off into her rambling thoughts from there. She yearns to treat herself better, to forgive those who've disappointed her, but at this point seems to downcast to make the move to self improvement. Her mind goes to unusual images and expressing her need for guidance and direction ("diamonds cough up rubies/ call me when you can see through me"), with the rest of the band dextrously following her meandering mind with taut indie rock verve. As usual, Frankie Cosmos have delivered a knotty song that has so much to unpick - it's hard to believe it clocks in under 3 minutes.

Check out the video for 'Windows' below, directed by Eliza Doyle and Greta Kline.
