Quarter Block Party presents
God Alone, Melts, Pretty Happy

GOD ALONE are a 5 piece band from Cork, Ireland. They combine the huge atmosphere of post metal and wretched black metal vocals with elements of droneââ, hardcore, math rock, electronic music and other genres.
Hailing from the Northside, Dublin five-piece MELTS have fast emerged as a force to be reckoned with in the city’s era-defining scene. Brimming with hooks and searing intent, their forward-pushing brand of rock ‘n’ roll weds elements of psychedelia, post-punk and Krautrock to deliver a sound all their own.
Pretty Happy are a noisy three-piece from Cork. Made up of Abbey Blake (guitar), Arann Blake (bass) and Andy Killian (drums), the trio have made people sit up and take notice on electric, eccentric live outings so far, establishing themselves as 'ones to watch' in the Cork music scene. Their sound is a fusion of bratty, hard-hitting punk and exciting, danceable melodies, made to stun and stimulate in equal measure.
The members of Pretty Happy are passionate about Cork's arts scene: Abbey is founder of Angry Mom Collective, a movement set up to bring attention to and bridge the gender divide in Irish arts, while all members are also keenly involved in drama and film, which clearly bleeds through to their live excursions:
