Review by Alysa O’Connor.
Jordan Cardy, the 19-year-old from Chelmsford better known as Rat Boy, is beginning to take the world by storm with his chaotic lyrics and clashing sounds.
Often compared to the likes of Jamie T and The Streets, his tunes are quickly circulating around the younger generation.
He’s now touring England with both Circa Waves and The 1975, as well as appearances at Reading & Leeds and Latitude festivals in the summer and his own headline tour, all in the space of a few months.
The evening saw eager fans form queues outside the sold-out venue, two hours before it all started.
Vitamin were first to play, with an almost psychedelic and addictive sound, getting the crowd swaying with the likes of Giving It Up and Miss You. This band are one to watch.
They were followed by Zibra, whose electronic style led to the crowd dancing enthusiastically. Zibra’s interactive stage presence and the appearance of Rat Boy in the front row, jumping along to hit Paris, definitely increased the crowd’s energy. Rat Boy, greeted by screaming girls, played their lesser known songs first, followed by Sign On, one of his best known songs. Latest single Fake ID left the house screaming for more and induced some crowdsurfing.
This was a capacity turnout, which was really positive considering that Rat Boy is yet to release an album.
The stage presence of Jordan and his band is something to be seen. Definitely keep your eyes peeled for their album next year, it’s going to be mad.
