RACKETT’s latest single ‘Oxytoxic’ continues the Sydney outfit’s foray into 21st Century electronica with autotuned vocals and a Stepford Wives dystopian world view cutting deep into into 2020s relationship politics with lyrics like: got your kiss / named our kids now / all of my picket fence dreams are making sense.
RACKETT’s creative force Rebecca Callander said, “️The title ‘Oxytoxic’ is a made-up word I created based on the love chemical Oxytocin.
“I’m really proud of this track, it’s out there, fun and weird as. I made it with Dave Hammer (Lime Cordiale, JEFFE) with finishing touches by Chris Behringer (Rihanna, St.Vincent).”
Those production credits are no accident. Callander, with her outfit RACKETT, has been recognised as a major talent in the Australian music scene for a while now. Kicking off this incarnation of RACKETT with a late 2019 tour of Japan, Callander will launch ‘Oxytoxic’ in Sydney on 6 February and Melbourne on 8 February.
Here’s hoping that RACKETT will make it our west for some live shows in the near future.
