KERRETTA



This blistering instrumental three-piece from the hinterlands of Auckland, New Zealand has enchanted audiences with its rhythmic onslaught since 2006. Described variously as lead-heavy¬Ě with sparse and beautiful moments, the trio have carved out a unique brand of dark rock that is scattered with melodic hooks. Within a short time of its release, the band's first single, Death in the Future Kerretta quickly gathered an enthusiastic following, sharing stages with Mono, Narrows, Explosions in the Sky, the Breeders and 'Trail Of Dead, before releasing their triumphant debut LP Vilayer in 2009, the first full-length follow-up to 2008's Antient EP.. Vilayer has been lauded in Kerretta's New Zealand homeland and nominated for the 2010 Taite Music Prize - the New Zealand equivalent of the UK's Mercury Awards for song-writing.
Since then they have toured Europe twice, covered the US in weight-laden doom, and went onto release their second album ""Saansilo" which The Aquarian (NY) stated " Saansilo is nothing shy of stunning and quite possibly one of my favorite releases of the year".
2013 has seen them return to the studio in preperation for the relase of their third album, release date soon.
