New Irish Music: Pretty Happy
by Killian Laher
Cork band Pretty Happy are a new name to No More Workhorse. Made up of Abbey Blake (guitar), Arann Blake (vocals, bass) and Andy Killian (drums), they have a new single Salami coming out on February 19th. A pounding sub three-minute rocker with echoes of the Pixies, it will certainly blow away any lingering January cobwebs! If this is anything to go by it will be worth watching out for these guys.

“Pretty Happy are an Art-Punk three-piece from Cork with a growing reputation for their dynamic live performances and electric eccentricities. Made up of Abbey Blake (Guitar), Arann Blake (Vocals, Bass Guitar) and Andy Killian (Drums), the trio have established themselves as one of the most exciting acts on the Cork music scene. They use a combination of absurdist lyrics, demented emotions and idiosyncratic melodies to create an all consuming noise rock sound.”
