These two tracks stir and shake as much as they punch and pummel.
The Racket is here, and just as their namesake implies, they’re a noisy affair. And aren’t we lucky? We’ve got the exclusive pre-release videos for the brand new 7″ that’s out on Klee Music via Plastic Head Music Distribution.
Hailing from the industrial town of Widnes UK, The Racket, a phenomenal four piece have two brand new singles (Don’t Know What To Say / Faded Days) available on a 7″ or for digital download here. If you’re looking for something fresh, forceful and reminiscent of the original indie rock scene, look no further. With an undeniable air of the Arctic Monkeys and a serious tip of the cap to one of their musical heroes, The Sex Pistols, this latest effort by the The Racket has attitude, energy and serious character. Both tracks sound organic and proud. You can feel it and taste it. It’s meaty enough to chew on at times. The content of the cuts revolving around anthemic declarations for youth stuck in jobs that will get them nowhere and facing these strapped times with a big middle finger. The Racket is loud. The Racket is imposing. These two tracks stir and shake as much as they punch and pummel.
Two videos down and I’m sure you’ll agree that The Racket’s sound is way bigger than they currently are. Given the proper scene and time, these guys could be something memorable and punctuated. I can only imagine the pure joy unknowing concert-goers must get when walking into a venue and finding this diamond in the rough. If these guys had a nickel for every time someone said ‘who the hell are these guys?!’, they’d have a big bag of fucking nickels. Their sound can own a stage and a crowd, sending the whole room into a serious tizzy.
The Racket’s launch gig is at The Zanzibar, Liverpool on Saturday 10th June 2017.
