Prettiots

See a name like The Prettiots and you’re right to have preconceptions. Now take those preconceptions and go wild with them. This three-piece from New York have ukulele at the forefront of their miniature jams, with no nonsense lyrics about what they want from a boy (“Please just be perfect right away/ Not too nice or not too mean and hopefully gay”). It’s cute, but also nonchalant – think the Moldy Peaches with a just a bit more punch and peppiness and you’re probably there – and if you take it for those aforementioned qualities, then you’ll have a new favourite jam. Listen to “Dreamboy” below, and keep and eye out for a new EP from The Prettiots early next year.
