Bio

RACKETT makes electro-punk OTT music, returning this October 2019, with a vibrant new single in ‘Machinations’ and debuting her new live show in Japan on a fourteen date throughout Osaka and Tokyo. A D.I.Y artist, RACKETT is based in Sydney, Australia and has evolved and diversified her genre and style over the years, evolving from punk-rock frontwoman to solo electro-punk artist.

RACKETT's latest single 'Oxytoxic', co-written and produced by Dave Hammer (Lime Cordiale, JEFFE) and mastered by Chris Behringer (St.Vincent, Rihanna), incorporates trap and dance influences to create a future-punk sound. RACKETT goes large in the positioning and delivery of lyrics that are equal parts intoxicating and enticing. “Got your kiss, named our kids now, all of my picket fence dreams are making sense.” she sings. “At your address, I’m undressed now, come find me standing outside your parents’ house.”

Bringing her music from the studio to stage is an element of the creative process RACKETT thrives on. Where 2019 had her touring nationally as well as internationally throughout Japan, RACKETT’s touring teeth have been well and truly sharpened, with tours alongside the likes of Jack River, The Growlers, DZ Deathrays and The Darkness introducing her to the hunger for live music only satiated by bombastic live performances. February will see her launch ‘Oxytoxic’ on the east coast - get around these shows, she’s only just getting started.

RACKETT like you've never heard before! I love how much you have evolved. You've taken your power and you've given it a noisy, creative, futuristic and bangin' twist. Can't wait to hear more.
