NYC's The Prettiots (Kay Kasparhauser and Lulu Prat) release their debut album, 'Funs Cool,' via Rough Trade / Remote Control Records!

Packed with catchy melodies, memorable hooks and heart on the sleeve lyrics, 'Funs Cool' acts as a thoughtful, funny, and catchy-as-hell state of the union address from young women living in a big city and watching life unfurl in fits and starts before them.

'Funs Cool' comes hot on the heels of their recent rapturously received first UK shows in November, and recent single, "Stabler," at once an ode to Elliot Stabler, the detective with a heart of gold from NBC's Law & Order series, and a wistful examination of idealism in romantic relationships.

They've got a playful aesthetic and a sweet pop sound, but their observations are scalpel-sharp, and the emotional gut-punch their music packs is real. For Kay (vocals and uke) and Lulu (bass), simple instrumentation and no-frills vocals aren't useful because they're easy or cute. They're useful because they're the fastest way to the truth.

As Kasparhauser explained recently in a Rookie Magazine interview earlier this year, "My lyrics are completely honest they're 100% true to my thoughts at any given moment. I like to talk about Werner Herzog and sex."
