Manchester four-piece Rixton follow up their No.1 debut single ‘Me And My Broken Heart’ with one of the biggest pop songs of the year in the form of ‘Wait On Me’. Co-written with producer Benny Blanco (Katy Perry, Maroon 5), ‘Wait On Me’ is a synth-driven slice of über-pop with an irresistible reggae-lilt at its heart.

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.
