“Brilliantly surreal” 
– Tom Robinson, BBC6
" 'Salami’ is a phenomenal track. Reminds me a lot of if Parquet Courts and the Viagra Boys collabed and were Irish. I love the post punk element and influence in the song.”
- Sofia K, KEXP
"Doomy, wonky guitars are knitted into the art punk tapestry that is Salami." 
– Melita Dennett, BBC Introducing

"Young contenders to the Cork music throne Pretty Happy are .... developing a reputation for the energy of their live shows and Abbey Blake’s emerging distinctive pedal-driven electronic guitar style."
- Ellie O'Byrne, Irish Examiner
"Having made an impression on gig-goers pre-pandemic with a live show that borders between playful, theatrical and unhinged, 'Salami' continues in that vein, marrying Pixies-inspired loud-quiet dynamic to stream-of-consciousness rhyming and vocalising."
- Mike McGrath Bryan, Irish Examiner
" 'Schmuck' provides four minutes of giddy, breathless, enjoyably unhinged guitar music, with hints of jangly power pop and Pixies-style ragged indie-rock in the mix."
- Lauren Murphy, entertainment.ie
"Pretty Happy have an intense and blustery sound. They know exactly how to craft their quirky madness to create a wonderfully expressive wall of sound. They meld and mangle haunting vocals, spoken quips, and screams between a harrowing onslaught of gnawing guitars and a rumbling rhythmic section to create unruly, and absolutely thrilling music."
- Indie Buddie
