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 ‘outstanding... this outfit is one to watch’.

RACKETT have moved from virtual anonymity to support slots for Abbe May, The Bennies, Sticky Fingers, Stonefield, DZ Deathrays and The Darkness (2017).

BATS is the first single released by RACKETT and has been played on triple J's Home and Hosed and Sydney's FBi as well as being featured online by Tonedeaf, Musicfeeds. Ready or Not is the follow up single taken from the bands forthcoming EP scheduled for release in 2017. The band have toured nationally on their own headline tour as well as supporting Stonefield in 2016. RACKETT will be appearing at Blurst of Times Festival and Electric Lady Festival in 2017.

"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)

I saw Rackett supporting The Darkness last week and fell in love. Like a modern day X-Ray Spex, Rackett brought the energy to the crowd and slayed it. High energy and addictive, I can't wait to see these vivacious girls live again!
