The Prettiots – “Suicide Hotline” Video

A song about NOT killing yourself.

“Suicide Hotline,” like many Prettiots songs, couches stunning barbs of insight between sweet, fun harmonies and playful ukelele strums. In this case, singer Kay Kasparhauser says the lyrics describe a time in her life when her “friends and also therapist were a little worried.” They’re macabre, invoking both Sylvia Plath and Virginia Woolf in darkly humorous fashion. But they’re also lucid and contain a notable amount of perspective, which should go far in quelling the concern of friends and counselors alike.
