Hard-hitting pop-rock outfit Rackett have released the new video for latest single 'Alive', a truly existential track tackling themes of material mortality and the infinitely evolving attention of popular culture. Inspired by 80's style horror films, the fiery four-piece are seen being hunted by a masked maniac in this thrilling film clip.
''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.
Written, recorded and produced by Rackett at Forces & Fury studio owned and recorded by drummer Astrid Holz and vocalist and guitarist Kat Ayala, 'Alive' epitomises the immense multi-faceted talent that the girls from Rackett posses.
"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 this entirely 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 singles 'Prey', 'Ready or Not', 'Bats' and 'Your Son'.
Rackett are currently on their largest tour to date spanning a massive nineteen dates across New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Queensland!
The NSW stretch of the national tour puts together in partnership with AHA NSW as part of their Rockin' The Puburbs competition, which the four-piece dominated 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 on our own. Pubs like the Captain Cook Hotel, Dicey Riley's and O'Donoughues are where so many Aussie's first experience live music and we're so excited for them to experience us," said Rackett.
