About the Artist

For those who have seen their blistering live show, Kerretta will no doubt be high on the "to see" gig agenda.

Those yet to experience the propulsive, driving rock from this instrumental three-piece have a chance to see them push the envelope of tone and dynamics in an intense set. Their catchy, sometimes ambient brand of molten-core will appeal to fans of The Swans and Bailterspace, but discerning listeners will know the trio peddle a uniquely atmospheric take on angular rock.

Following the release of their debut 7" "Death In The Future" in 2007, a performance in January 2008 at The Big Day Out festival helped them share stages with Explosions In The Sky, The Breeders and Trail Of Dead. In April 2008 they recorded four tracks in Port Chalmers, Dunedin with audio guru Dale Cotton which was released later that year on 12" coloured grey vinyl and entitled "Antient". Also in 2008 Kerretta had track entitled "Shoot This Messenger" released on the 12" compilation "Effectuation" on Midium Records.

All Kerretta releases are available online in New Zealand, Europe, North America at,, and for digital download. Kerretta have in 2009 remixed Pitch Black's "Birdsoul" for their new remix album and released their debut long player on multiple formats in the Southern Hemisphere winter of 2009.
