DIY Australian indie-pop artist RACKETT drops new electronic single ‘Everywhere You’re Not’ featuring NY rapper Dante Knows, co-written, produced and mixed by Dave Hammer (Lime Cordiale, Mia Rodriguez), and mastered by Andrew Edgeston (Amy Shark, Tia Gostelow).


Beat driven and bass-heavy, the single punches into a huge dance drop out of a euphoric, stripped back chorus. Featuring 16 bars of rap by NY born, SYD based rapper, Dante Knows, the single is another reveal of what RACKETT fans can expect from her debut mini-album due for release in late November 2020.

“‘Everywhere You’re Not’ is about freedom and liberation from an ex-lover. It’s a realisation that the world is a big place full opportunities and the awakening of possibilities from the limitations of staying in one place, with one person. As a massive Dante Knows fan I was thrilled to have him on the single, I saw him perform in Sydney in late 2019 and have been following his music ever since. I think he’s one of the most talented artists I’ve discovered and as the first feature I’ve ever released, it’s a big moment for me” – RACKETT


For the music video RACKETT teamed up with up and coming Sydney director, Murli. Shot at Archie’s Brother Arcade and Tokyo Sing Song in Sydney, the music video was inspired by ASAP Rocky’s L$D. Styled and with creative direction by RACKETT,  the Sydney artist once again flexes her DIY approach and produces an acid-washed, neon popping feast for the eyes.

The single is one of eight tracks co-written and produced by Dave Hammer in Sydney prior to RACKETT’s rebranding in late 2019. After parting ways with her band-mates Ally Gaven, Kat Alaya and Astrid Holz, RACKETT’s Rebecca Callander spent a year widening her tastes and experimenting with new sounds while also going on a journey of self-recalibration.


RACKETT has since revealed four singles in her revitalised electro-pop persona – ILY Alley, Machinations, Oxytoxic and Crush – which have received spins on both triple j and Unearthed, and led to her embarking on a fourteen date headline tour in Japan in late 2019. Upon returning to Australia, RACKETT revealed her new sound and electronic stage show to fans in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane in early 2020.


Bringing her music from the studio to stage is an element of the creative process RACKETT thrives on; her touring teeth have been well and truly sharpened, with bombastic performances on multiple tours alongside the likes of Jack River, The Growlers, DZ Deathrays and The Darkness, already under her belt.

In 2020 RACKETT followed this up with ​Oxytoxic ​and I​ LY Alley​ from her debut mini-album due for release in November 2020. On July 31st 2020, RACKETT will release her latest pop offering in ​Crush​. Prior to RACKETT’s sonic reinvention, she released 2 indie-rock EPs; ​Ready or Not​ and ​I Please Myself​.

“ILY Alley (I Love You, Alley) ​is the best kind of love song because it is one for a friend, not a lover. The ratio of love songs for lovers as opposed to friends is absolutely insane considering how many friends outlast lovers (right?)”​ – ​American Pancake (USA).


“I REALLY like this new direction!” – C​elline Narinll, Triple J.
