Bio

Psych-punk-pop quartet RACKETT are zooming off into the stratosphere, releasing a brand new cosmic-themed single Space Cadet.The tune is infused with all the guitar-mastery fans have come to expect from the group, rounded off with a blistering solo and an unexpected co-writing credit.

RACKETT are hitting the road for a huge national tour that will see them perform in Sydney, Manly, Coogee, Melbourne, Wollongong, Gold Coast, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Perth and Albury this June and July.

RACKETT make loud and experimental punk-pop. In one year, the band have moved from virtual anonymity to playing in major theatres and festivals throughout Australia, receiving regular airplay on community and commercial radio, features in Rollingstone Magazine, become the featured talent in national campaign for General Pants and earned a reputation for “Thrilling live shows, a technically proficient and powerful sound, and a DIY hyper-femme aesthetic”, The BRAG.

The band is fronted by Rebecca Callander on rhythm guitar and vocals. “Callander puts down her guitar after a few songs and jumps down into the crowd to dance with us, reaching out to hold hands and scratch heads and go a little wild, and it's honestly the greatest thing ever”, The Music.
Ally Gavin on bass, Astrid Holz on drums and Kat Ayala on lead guitar. Band members have undergone extensive music and performance training (Berklee College of Music U.S.A, The Australian Conservatorium of Music) and specialise in a range of genres from jazz to heavy metal. Their combined powers make for a diverse and highly skilled song-writing team.

"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.
“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.

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.
