‘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
Previously the winner of Best New Artist at the NME Awards, recent months have seen RAT BOY hit a number of notable career highlights. He was sampled on Kendrick Lamar’s huge album ‘DAMN.’, sold-out London’s historic Roundhouse and contributed music to Aminé’s film ‘Becoming Aminé’ alongside Tyler, The Creator.
