Ear-splitting sound

Kerretta lets the music do the talking.

Not only is the New Zealand band instrumental, the three-piece has a thing about not taking photographs of themselves. Same thing goes for film (no camera interviews and limited face time in their videos).

Luckily, that ethos doesn’t cancel out live performances. Currently on their first US tour, the band is out in support of their new album “Vilayer,” eight tracks of propulsive angular rock, which includes a stop in Brooklyn next month.

Hailed in their native New Zealand for their ear-splitting live shows, the band has gained fans touring with the likes of ...And You’ll Know Us by the Trail of Dead and The Breeders. A US tour was only a matter of time, even if it is halfway across the globe.

“People say the world is getting smaller with technology and all which is true, but it’s still a long way for a band from New Zealand to come,” says the band’s W. Waters. “We’re doing our best to back it up and slip in some tasty new tunes to show what’s to come.”

Yep, for Kerretta, it’s all about the music.

Kerretta play Union Hall [702 Union St. at Fifth Avenue in Park Slope, (718) 638-4400] on Friday, April 2 at 10 pm. Tickets are $8. For info, visit
