Bio

RACKETT makes loud and experimental pop. Based in Sydney, Australia, RACKETT has moved from virtual anonymity to playing in major theatres and festivals throughout Australia, receiving regular airplay on community radio, features in Rolling Stone Magazine, The Music, Music Feeds and more, become the featured talent in a 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.
Supporting the likes of Jack River, Amyl and The Sniffers, The Growlers, Bec Sandridge, Lime Cordiale and having completed national touring with The Darkness (UK) and her own headline tour of Japan in 2019, RACKETT has crafted an adventurous live show described by The Music, as, “It’s intense, it’s magical”.
RACKETT has appeared at Groovin the Moo, Big Pineapple Festival, Festival of the Sun, Secret Garden Festival, Hotter than Hell, Electric Lady and more.

In October 2019, after a year of songwriting with producer Dave Hammer (Lime Cordiale), cultivating a new sound and image, an electro pop-inspired RACKETT emerged with a new single in Machinations, launching her new stage show and sound with a 14 date headline tour of Japan. In 2020 RACKETT followed this up with Oxytoxic and ILY Alley from her debut mini-album due for release in November 2020.

Rackett's constantly evolving sound seems to be gaining pace to the point here this one is sounding pure 2025. Reckon the next one might see us in the 2040s.

RACKETT's in her own lane. Seriously! Lots of flavour and Dante Knows droppin' in just adds to the fire.
