The Prettiots


Meet The Prettiots - New York’s no-nonsense ukulele wielding 'It Girls' and undoubtedly your next crush. Brimming with all the charm and innocence of Cher Horowitz in Clueless, but armed with the attitude and precocious wit of Winona Ryder in Heathers, this all girl three-piece arrive with glittering, indie art-pop, on their forthcoming EP.
With effervescent melodies faultlessly combined with colorfully upfront dialogue, The Prettiots paint an exceptionally vivid portrait of what it’s like to be young and living in New York City, using unabashed and no-nonsense songwriting as directed by front woman Kay Kasparhauser, and accompanied by Rachel Trachtenburg (Supercute!) and Lulu Prat (Tangiers).
In this new single, "Boys In High School", Kasparhauser muses about her various high school relationships, which in hindsight were not as good as she thought. "These are the boys that I dated in high school. I thought they were so nice and I thought they were so cool", she quips. The song's deadpan, matter-of-fact humor reminds us how strange and fleeting young relationships can be. The track will also be accompanied by a music video, shot by the acclaimed Richard Kern.
