Rixton Live at Hyde Park BST

Rixton Live

Hi all, a passion of mine that occurs a little less often in this blog is music. I'm not going to pretend I know how to break a band, or that I have the most unique, quirky tastes but I love it all the same so I thought I'd share my thoughts on some guys that are about to make it big. I went to BST in Hyde Park a couple of weeks ago to support my one true loves McBusted but as the day drew closer it became apparent the lineup was actually pretty stellar. In addition to them was 5ive, Lawson, The Vamps, Backstreet Boys and Wheatus amongst others. This lead to some pretty hard decisions when planning our day but when it came around unfortunately 5ive and Lawson couldn't play so we took the chance to check one of the lesser known bands - Rixton,

As well as some great original tracks on their VEVO, these lads have got some kick ass covers over on their original Youtube channel. Their sound has been described as Maroon 5 meets One Republic and I'm definitely okay with that. They have just scored their first number one with 'Me and my broken heart' which sounds weirdly like this retro Rob Thomas track.

Sadly they only played a very short set but I can tell you they totally blew me away - Ryan went in moaning and came out having caught their towel excitedly (they're THAT good). My favourite tracks were the acoustic Hotel Ceiling - written with Mr Sheeran no less and Appreciated. They also played their cover of 'Problem' by Ariana and Iggy and a really cool mash up of both JT's and Route 94's 'My Love'. The harmonies and vocals were so on point and they were energetic and played beautifully.

All this and they're cute as a button - I've got my eye on Danny the multi-talented bass and pianist is my favourite although rumours tell me he's dating pint size Disney/Youtube princess Jennifer Veal (of Lucas and Jenny fame). I can't wait for their album to come out and tell you all about it. I looked up their headline dates but sadly they were only doing 3 UK dates and they were all very far from me and sold out... Come back soon boys!

Have you heard of Rixton? What are your favourite tracks?
