“As with the ludicrously catchy ‘Me And My Broken Heart’, ‘Wait On Me’… is so expertly precision-tooled that each second seems to introduce a new hook.” – The Guardian
Watch Rixton perform the track live at a sold-out gig in LA
Rixton have just finished their debut headline tour of the USA, where ‘Wait On Me’ is already climbing the charts with incredible speed, following the phenomenal success of ‘Me And My Broken Heart’ which has sold well over a million copies and been viewed over 25 million times on YouTube.
They have also recently appeared at the Teen Choice Awards in the US – where they were nominated for four awards including Breakout Music Group – and performed a brilliant medley of ‘Wait On Me’ and ‘Me And My Broken Heart’ to an absolutely rapturous audience.
Rixton have just been confirmed as the final VEVO Lift artist for 2014, following similar high-profile support from VEVO for Sam Smith and Ella Eyre. Rixton topped the fan-voted poll with the biggest-ever vote VEVO have received, gaining over 140,000 fans demanding that Rixton take the final slot.

The Times, live review of Bush Hall, 9th July 2014:
“Rixton’s songs tread a clever line between instantly infectious teen pop and the more grown-up retro soul and reggae-lite sounds of Maroon 5 and Bruno Mars… The high-spirited singer Jake Roche, the youngest member at 21, is a funny natural frontman… the falsetto-sung ‘We All Want The Same Things’ was a stompalong anthem built for arenas and performed brilliantly by Roche – his back to the crowd, his arms aloft – as though he were already on a stage that size.”
