Pretty Happy is a 3-piece sister-brother-bestfriend art-punk band from Cork known for intense theatrical live performances, and embracing the idioms and energy of their home city. In the last six months they opened for Future Islands, Gilla Band, Pillow Queens, The Mary Wallopers, toured the UK with Altered Hour and toured Europe and the UK with Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth, Body/Head), and performed at Primavera Sound, All Together Now and Raw Power in London. In November they open for Pavement in Dublin. Pretty Happy are diverse artists who enage with theatre, film and visual art. In June this year they curated QUARE a celebration of queer art in Cork with one-day open-air event in St. Anne’s Park in Shandon for Cork Midsummer Festival. The band also made a documentary about Cork punk and post-punk heritage (something very close to their heart) for the Triskel Art Centre’s WRITE RECORD PERFORM residency which is premiering in August.

For their forthcoming debut EP, the trio teamed up with producer John ‘Spud’ Murphy (Lankum, Black Midi) at Hellfire Studios in Dublin. The new material, due for release in late October, will reveal a more expansive textural sound.
