Latitude 2016: Rat Boy rocks Latitude crowds
- Credit: James Bass
At a time when the younger population feel underrepresented and lacking a voice one scraggly Chelmsford 20-year-old appears to be offering a vent for that disillusionment and frustration.
Jordan Cardy, aka Rat Boy, took to the Latitude BBC 6 Music Stage, at noon, to entertain and rouse a youthful crowd from their sleepy festival slumber.
Easily identifiable with his ripped jeans, worn shirt and baseball cap the former Wetherspoons worker gave a riotous set with his unique mix of Beastie Boys' beats, jangling guitar and spitfire lyrics akin to that of Jamie T.
Songs such as Sign On and Left 4 Dead combined to send the crowd into a frenzy of circle pits and chaos.
The street urchin who possess an ability to poetically dissect and commentate on society.

He's not pretty and at times Rat Boy barely holds the music together teetering on the brink as he throws himself across the stage but there is no denying he is relevant and is sure to endear himself further to the younger generations whom his tales of teenage failings and frustrations clearly hold great significance.
