Jordan Cardy, jeune homme de 19 ans plus connu sous le nom de RAT BOY, vient de sortir un nouveau morceau. L’artiste ayant d’abord fait ses preuves sur des titres rock-grungy/nonchalants tels que Fake ID ou Sign On.
La mouvance Mac Demarco-ienne n’est donc pas près de s’arrêter car après le sympathique « branleur » mais non moins talenteux Only Real, c’est au tour de RAT BOY de s’illustrer. Ici, le style est particulier, la diction est rapide et le rythme intense. En quelques essais il a réussi à créer une sphère unique lui permettant de sortir du lot. A peine habitué à cet univers que l’artiste se réinvente déjà sur Move, morceau hip-hop qui n’est pas sans rappeler les Beastie Boys. © lavagueparallèle

Throughout his tracks to date, RAT BOY has continually evolved his style from the hip-hop/punk fusion of ‘Sign On’ through to boisterous big beat with ‘Move’ and the trap/funk/folk mash-up of ‘Get Over It’.

Lovers Law’ offers another angle to his consistently eclectic sound in which a modernised take on the energy and anarchy of the Madchester scene battles for prominence with elements of 80s electro-pop.

In addition to his music, RAT BOY’s skills extend into other disciplines including artwork, video production, prop design and fashion. His clothing line SCUM mixes 70s gangster chic with in vogue skatewear, and his creations have been snapped up by fans who have stayed behind after gigs to buy his limited edition designs.

Throughout the year to date, RAT BOY’s growing acclaim has been matched with a succession of major award nominations. He started the year in style by being named on both the BBC Sound of 2016 longlist and the MTV Brand New for 2016 shortlist, and also won Best New Artist at the NME Awards.
