UK prodigy RAT BOY, aka Jordan Cardy, has unveiled a mischievous and visionary new video to accompany his latest single ‘Get Over It’, the upbeat title-track from his forthcoming EP out August 26, available digitally and on vinyl via Ratbag Records.
The outlandish and vibrant video is shot across dusty deserts and grimy U.S. diners, complete with police chases, blazing guns and a mariachi band. Featuring RAT BOY and his partners in crime Neptune and Scum, the clip draws parallels to the thrilling adventures of Bonnie & Clyde – this time reimagined in RAT BOY’s immersive, colourful world. Already clocking up over 21,000 views in 48 hours, the impressively crafted clip was directed, produced and animated by Cardy, who also designed the clothes and props for the video (even the car was built by his Dad), creating a world that links his music and creative projects into one.
RAT BOY’s growing acclaim has seen him work alongside great UK talents such as Damon Albarn, take out this year’s Best New Artist at the NME Awards and nominated on both the BBC Sound of 2016 longlist and the MTV Brand New for 2016 shortlist. His creativity extends into other territories outside of music, and his clothing lines SCUM and SKATING KILLS have been embraced by fans who have lined up after gigs to buy limited edition collections and designs. After his biggest headline performance yet at London’s Electric Brixton and a recent performance at Glastonbury, RAT BOY is set to hit the NME and BBC Radio 1 stages at the Reading and Leeds Festivals in the UK this August.
