hmv's Next Big Thing... #48 RAT BOY
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you potty mouth poet RAT BOY...
Who Is He?
RAT BOY is 19-year old Essex boy Jordan Cardy, he made waves after releasing a free mix tape back in 2014, followed it up with a series of stellar singles and live shows and he's now readying his debut album.
Who Does He Sound Like?
The most obvious comparison is Jamie T, but there's more going on here. There's plenty of Bob Dylan, Mike Skinner, early Public Enemy and Gil Scott-Heron in here too, it's a lovely mixture.
Why Should I Be Excited?
He's wittty, sparky, full of piss and vinegar, and, most importantly of all, he's got tunes!
Can I Hear Something?
Of course you can, his new single 'Waste Man' is below for you and all his early singles are available here.
