EDITORS’ NOTES

If the girls from Girls formed a band, they’d probably sound like this New York trio. Kay Kasparhauser, Lulu Prat, and Rachel Trachtenburg create honest, whip-smart songs about being a twentysomething. “Boys (That I Dated in High School)” is a hilarious litany of losers, combining The Waitresses’ sassy New Wave with Jeffrey Lewis’ anti-folk. They take as much from doo-wop as they do from indie rock, whether singing about depression (“Suicide Hotline”) or comparing a boyfriend to a character from Law & Order (“Stabler”).

Funs Cool is soooo cool!

I saw this band for the first time last year and I fell in love. I have been waiting for this cd for forever, it was well worth it! The songs are so catchy, the lyrics are great!

Love it

Their album is very relatable and also great to listen to. I wish I could have seen them in concert in DC but plans changed. I get excited talking to people about the Prettiots! Keep making music!!!!!

About The Prettiots

With their sassy, no-nonsense lyrics and gently scuzzed but highly melodic indie pop, New York duo the Prettiots have garnered comparisons to the Moldy Peaches, though their obsessions with Law & Order and the movie Clueless put them in a strange league of their own. Formed in 2014 by singer and ukulele player Kay Kasparhauser and bassist Lulu Landolfi, they gigged around New York, building up their reputation and material. A stop at SXSW during their first national tour in 2015 resulted in a deal with Britain's Rough Trade Records, which issued a 7" of the Prettiots' wry single "Boys (That I Dated in High School)" later that summer. Their full-length debut, Funs Cool, was released in February 2016. ~ Timothy Monger
