On The Radar: Pretty Happy

Cork trio Pretty Happy, are set to drop their new single ‘Mr. Crabs’, which is as good a time as any to show up on the radar.

On the radar, Cork’s Pretty Happy get set to release their new single ‘Mr. Crabs’.

Pretty Happy are made up of siblings Aaran and Abbey Blake, with Andy Killian completing the trifecta. Well submersed within Cork’s music scene, they’ve already gained a strong following across the city.

The trio’s sound mashes brooding indie melodies along with the heaviness of grunge. One moment you’ll be immersed in glistening indie melodies on ‘Talkative’ before feeling overwhelmed with the intense ‘The Lover’.

With their debut EP due out later this year, they’re starting to tease what to expect with new single ‘Mr. Crabs’, out on Thursday 21st February.

Cork trio Pretty Happy, are set release their debut EP later this year.

Short and sweet, the song opens with a smooth beat before quickly picking up tempo with a rumbling bass line and buzzing hooks. Frontman Aaran Blake, is erratic as he sings about close calls with dates gone wrong, only to go and do it all again with the next one.

Mr. Crabs’ is a tense affair and is Pretty Happy’s most exciting release to date. No hints as to when their debut EP will be released, the latest single will at least tie us over until then.

Pretty Happy breath new life into their songs when they take to the stage. You can find out for yourself on Thursday 21st February, when they play their first gig in Dublin, as they take to Fibber Magees to celebrate the single launch. They then support The Slut Club in Cork’s Dali on Tuesday 26th February.
