Fiery four-piece Rackett have released the music video for their latest single Alive, which sees them hunted by an 80’s inspired horror maniac!
Alive is a truly existential track tackling themes of material mortality and the infinitelyevolving attention of popular culture; all wrapped in the infection, hard hitting pop-rock Rackett has refined to a point!
“Alive is about the material reincarnation of oneself. Alive celebrates the life and death cycle of an adopted trend and empowers you to re-decide your identity and to let go of the past,” said vocalist and guitarist Rebecca Callander.
Alive was truly an independent effort for the band, the track written, recorded and produced by Rackett at Forces & Fury Studios owned by drummer Astrid Holz and vocalist, guitarist Kat Ayala.
“When deciding what recording process would best serve this song and the band’s overall sound, we realized that we had all the skills and resources to record and produce thisentirely ourselves. Of course, we had our doubts in the beginning but we pushed forward and created what we feel is our best record so far,” said Ayala.
Alive is the fifth single from Rackett following on from the rocking success from singlesPrey, Ready or Not, BATS and Your Son.
Rackett are currently on their largest tour to date spanning a massive nineteen datesacross New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Queensland!
The NSW stretch of the national tour is put together in partnership with AHA NSW as part of their Rockin’ The Puburbs competition, which the four-piece dominated late last year.
“Working with AHA NSW through Rockin’ The Puburbs is giving us the opportunity to play in venues and reach audiences that we couldn’t have on our own. Pubs like theCaptain Cook Hotel, Dicey Riley’s and O’Donoughues are where so many Aussie’sfirst experience live music and we’re so excited for them to experience us,” said Rackett.
