Bio

RACKETT make loud and experimental punk-pop. Since forming at the start of 2016 (from Sydney, Australia), RACKETT have been steadily crafting an adventurous live show which has been described by The Music as ‘It's intense...It's Magical’.

RACKETT have moved from virtual anonymity to support slots for Abbe May, The Bennies, Sticky Fingers, Stonefield, DZ Deathrays and national touring with The Darkness (2017) and Stonefield (2016). The band have also appeared at Electric Lady, The Blurst of Times, Secret Garden Festival, Festival of The Sun and Mountain Sounds Festival.

The band's latest release 'Prey' is a soft and feminine shoegaze track, a different direction for the hard-hitting women of RACKETT. 'Prey', plus previous releases 'BATS' and 'Ready or Not' are taken from the bands forthcoming EP scheduled for release in late 2017.

RECENT COVERAGE

"infuriating" (The Music)
"outstanding.. this outfit is one to watch" (The Music)
"Quickly gaining notoriety for their energy, passion and skill" (Music Feeds)
"Noise is their number one trade and they’re very, very good at it" (Tone Deaf)
"a total fuck you to the notion that ‘feminine’ and punk are mutually exclusive" (The Ladies Network)
“Rackett really couldn’t be doing any more right. They’ve played and played and played, they’ve quite clearly landed on a musical spot they’re all delighted to be on, and they’re tight, focussed, and in the damn zone. They’re also madder than a box of frogs… fast becoming my band of the year.” (Teds Records)

Rackett have stepped it up with 'Prey'. It's great to hear their songwriting growing and evolving. This track has a warm, lush vibe and even though they've dialed back the distortion, it's still got bite thanks to the lyrics.

I'm all up in this one like a dog in a blanket. Not sure how to get out but also not sure if I want to? It's warm, it's bold and it's so well delivered.
