Never miss another 'Rat Boy' show
Rat Boy, Bad Sounds, Ten Tonnes
After releasing his debut album ‘Scum’, Rat Boy can now confirm details of his biggest tour to date. The news comes as Rat Boy and his band prepare to hit the main stage at the Reading and Leeds festivals.
‘Scum’ finds RAT BOY – aka Jordan Cardy – exploring relatable themes of his and his friends’ experiences growing up disillusioned in suburban Essex. While the album is united by such concepts, musically RAT BOY jumps at will between hip-hop, punk, indie anthems, gospel, big beat and bossa nova like the Beastie Boys for the Brexit generation.
Rat Boy (real name Jordan Cardy) is a man painting a picture of being young in suburban Britain, following in an illustrious line of great urban storytellers from Squeeze to Blur and The Streets. The music Rat Boy uses to spread his messages is a neat, powerful brand of indie hip-hop rock, all samples, sound effects, slashes of guitar and machine beats.
One to watch, probably over your shoulder, in the dead of night, after the pubs have shut, the fights have started and the chip shops are doing a roaring trade.
