NYC’s The Prettiots (Kay Kasparhauser and Lulu Prat) will release their debut album, Funs Cool, on Friday 5th February 2016 via Rough Trade / Remote Control Records.
They recorded a Rough Trade session in Brighton UK – check out new track ’18 Wheeler’ as well as their totally refashioned take on The Strokes’ ‘Someday’ via the images below.
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.
Comprising a book, album and short film, A New Place 2 Drown is a new multidisciplinary body of work from brothers Jack and Archy Marshall (King Krule.)
A New Place 2 Drown delves even deeper into the brother’s artistic work, drawing further from Jack’s discipline as a visual artist and Archy’s as a musician, to create something inimitable and entirely unique as a result.
A New Place To Drown will be published as a 250-page book plys includes stunning 37-minute, 12-song soundtrack of brand new music from Archy Marshall, released on True Panther Sounds / Remote Control Records. While intended as an absolutely essential companion piece to the book, the soundtrack showcases a different side to Archy’s musical craft, highlighting more evolved electronic production colored with Archy’s poetic verse delivered in his distinct baritone.
Finally, the entire project is then tied together by a short film by Will Robson Scott, which incorporates elements of both the book and the soundtrack to brilliant effect. View the trailer for the film and visit the website to hear tracks from the soundtrack now. Watch the official trailer below!
