Weekly Featured Artist: RACKETT

Oozing with attitude, talent, and raw musical appeal, Sydney’s RACKETT has used 2017 to cut a swath through Australia’s live music scene. Their unique brand of experimental punk-pop has been mesmerising audiences from Adelaide to Brisbane – and with such a polished yet complex sound it’s easy to see why. It’s for this reason that RACKETT are this week’s featured artist.

This has been a breakout year for the band, moving them from relative anonymity to the cusp of greatness. So far this year, they have supported The Darkness, Killing Heidi, and Stonefield on national tours and have featured in a national campaign for General Pants. It’s little wonder they have received high praise from Rollingstone Magazine and seen some serious air time on the Js.

Last month brought the release of their debut EP – Ready or Not – which has already produced three kickass singles BATS, Ready or Not!, and Prey all of which somehow manage to fuse cleanness of sound with an amazing grittiness of character. They are now in the midst of a launch tour to spread the fruits of their labour to audiences throughout the country.

Needless to say, RACKETT are going places quickly, and we can’t wait to see where the next 12 months takes them. But why take our word for it, why not find out for yourself? Lucky RACKETT is available for bookings right here on Six8…
