Pop punk queens RACKETT have unveiled their twisted 60’s cookbook meet silence of the lambs esc video.
Written and directed by Mathilde Nocquet, the music video is a quirky cooking lesson hosted by a young, beautiful and totally psychotic housewife. With it’s bright colours, retro feel and wacky bourgeois style, the film will bring you into a world of craziness leading by offbeat humour. Frenchy film director Mathilde Nocquet brings the sydney outfit’s playful new single ‘PREY’ to life, seducing the viewers with her unique flair and sassy sense of humour.
“The song was inspired by a book on unique predatory animals. Upon learning about the strange behaviours used by these animals to attract their prey, I felt I could relate to the animals in the book that had become victims to a cleverly, deceptive predator. The concept for the video comes from the inspiration for the song; The food chain. We wanted to put a twist on the universal pecking order and capture the mercilessness of the ultimate predator; humans”. Rebecca Callander RACKETT
“Alongside the shrugged casualness of the brutality, the song itself bubbles with an equal swaying, smiling innocence, as poignant, poetic lines (“in your arms, I’m in your web”) are masked by a sickly sweet delivery”. – ROLLINGSTONE
