Pretty Happy have shared a video for the opening track and lead single from from their new EP ‘Echo Boy’. Boots finds the Cork trio combining the playfulness of Pixies with the verve of early Queens of The Stone Age creating a track which is as big as a tree.
The video shot on location in Poc ar Buile pub in Midleton, County Cork starring Niamh Santry and Leagues O’Toole with the band themselves appearing as locals and staff.
“It’s the final straw for someone feeling unsafe in their local pub. The main character, symbolising a new Ireland, screams for her belonging in a place she should have already felt at home,” explains guitarist/vocalist Abbey Blake.
The gargantuan sound of the track was captured by producer John ‘Spud’ Murphy (Lankum, Black Midi) at Hellfire Studios, Dublin.
