"Let the Road" by Rixton on iTunes

12 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Bolstered by the success of “Me and My Broken Heart (which samples Rob Thomas’ “Lonely No More”), the debut album by Manchester, England’s brightest young things carries a heady torch for pop and R&B. And main producer Benny Blanco (Katy Perry, Maroon 5) establishes an unshakable sheen throughout. The title song about the warmth of home features a sunny a cappella that intersects fittingly with heavy orchestration and a marching feel. The Ed Sheeran–penned “Hotel Ceiling” is a heartbreaker, “Appreciated” is perfect acoustic-driven pop, and the melancholic “Beautiful Excuses” is as beautiful a song as any released since 2000.

Get this hot fire now

Thisonetime,

Seriously the best album of the decade! If you're even thinking about getting this, stop, and just click purchase! It's basically $0.70 / song which is basically stealing for how good all the songs are. Great textures and dreamy rifts take you off into an amazing music land where Rixton shreds their melodic tunes straight to your ear drums!!! Just get it already if you're still reading.

Watch Out! (in a good way)

adacookie,

Well hello! If you like: Justin Timberlake, OneRepublic, Usher, Maroon 5, or Ed Sheeran... You've come to the right place. RIXTON! These young British men destined for the long run.
I know that phrase "the next big thing" gets thrown around a lot these days. However, I haven't been THIS excited for a music group and their album since OneRepublic's Waking Up or Justin Timberlake's unexpected 20/20 album (years). This is huge.
Rixton is a band made up of VERY talented musicians/vocalists (Jake, Charley, Danny and Lewi!) that display a variety of musical styles. Their vocals meld together like a beautiful symphony. Smashing it live, acoustically, AND produced.
Entertainers at their core, they engage the audience with their humor and enthusiasm. With each member bringing something unique to the mix. Every song a bidding to participate and sing along or sway and swoon.
Breaking on to the scene with the ever so catchy Me and My Broken Heart and then Wait on Me. Rixton will get you moving. Then there are slower songs like: Hotel Ceiling, Speakerphone, and Beautiful Excuses that will tug on your heartstrings.
You may have seen them appear on: The Voice, Ellen, Late night with Seth Meyers, Teen Choice Awards, the Today Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live (I'm sure I've missed some, tons of UK apperances as well).
Find Rixton on Youtube performing covers including: Usher's Numb, Sisqó's Thong Song, Taylor Swift's I Knew You Were Trouble (a witty and clever response), Ariana Grande's Problem, as well as a few of the songs from this album. You'll witness the talent yourself.
These gents are the real deal. A fantastic group of easy going, fun loving, hard working, fan supporting, and oh so funny men. They will steal your heart while they serenade you to heaven on Earth.
Seriously, don't pass this up. Do yourself a favor and order Let the Road. This music and these lads will change your life. I know Rixton has certainly changed mine. I am so proud of you guys! Jake, Charley, Danny and Lewi. Keep it up! We want more...

About Rixton

Soulful and effusive British pop/rock/R&B quartet Rixton turned heads in 2013 with their hugely successful YouTube channel, which featured the band covering hits from the likes of Taylor Swift, R. Kelly, Rita Ora, and Chris Brown. Invoking names like Maroon 5, Bruno Mars, and Ed Sheeran, the group formed in Manchester in 2012 around the talents of lead singer and rhythm guitarist Jake Roche, bassist/keyboardist and backing vocalist Danny Wilkin, lead guitarist and backing vocalist Charley Bagnall, and drummer Lewi Morgan. The group made its American debut in March 2014 with the Interscope-issued Me and My Broken Heart EP, with the promise of a full-length outing to follow later in the year. In 2015, Rixton returned with their debut full-length album, Let the Road, featuring the singles "Wait on Me," and "Hotel Ceiling." ~ James Christopher Monger
