Artist Spotlight: Kerretta

An interesting electro-experimental rock band from New Zealand, Kerretta has a way of taking simple things and making them genius. With their recently released single, "A Ways To Uprise", they take a classic 2-4 snare kick beat, throw on some ultrabass and some heavy distortion, add a bit of wah-wah synthesizer, and a hint of reverb, and they have a successful single. Not that this is the first time they've achieved such genius, as this is a single released after their four prior albums, and a hinting at what will be their sophomore full-length, after Vilayer, which was released in 2009. Hoping to hear a lot more from the band soon, because they hinted at some "big news" at the end of June, but we'll wait and see what happens with the new album.

You can check out the single for free on their Bandcamp, and you can also stream the entirety of Vilayer for free as well.
