MERETTO ‘Chainsaw Art’ Holier Than Thou Records (2005)


Meretto are a art rock/power pop three piece hailing from Reading. The self proclaimed children of the 80’s draw in influences from such music genres as prog rock, Britpop, classical and metal.

The by-product of these influences is Chainsaw Art, Meretto’s latest release.

The opening track ‘OK, Hello, Now!’ provides a strong introduction to the album and instantly breaks down the formal musician/audience barrier, that often separates bands from their audience.

This is achieved by the lyrics being sung directly to the audience and placed over a perfectly tuned bass line.

The idea of the broken formal musician/audience barrier is carried on and furthered in the subsequent songs.

Tracks such as ‘Chainsaw Art’ (sharing its name with the album.) and the single ‘My T.V’ particularly stand out.

Although Chainsaw Art doesn’t provide the typical dancing art rock, that the indie kids just love, this album is a sure fire winner.

Providing reason after reason to follow this up- and-coming art rock/power pop three piece-Meretto.
