Rat Boy – Scum (Released 11th August)

£20.99 – LP

Fresh from selling out London’s Roundhouse and being sampled on Kendrick Lamar’s huge album ‘DAMN.’, RAT BOY will release his eagerly anticipated debut album ‘SCUM’

‘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 a one-man Beastie Boy for the Brexit generation.

The collection shows RAT BOY’s evolution as a producer and lyricist with several tracks that are established staples of his riotous live show. An early version of ‘Sportswear’ first appeared on his self-released mixtape from 2014, while other key tracks from his rise to date that appear include the breakthrough single ‘Sign On’, follow-ups ‘Fake ID’, ‘Move’ and ‘Get Over It’ through to the recent single ‘Revolution’
