So Rixton Have Some Pretty Cool Videos...

Rixton have just released their debut album Let The Road in the UK and Ireland, but since it's been out in the rest of the world for months, I won't be reviewing it now. By the way, they are a UK band, so what kind of a messed up release schedule is that? The album was out in the US back in March, but the UK are only getting it now. Never mind, moving on to our topic of the day, and that is the boys' cool videos!

Although they have only one album so far, Rixton have released a bunch of singles, meaning they already have a lot of music videos too - most of which are very interesting. You can see that they put a lot of effort into them, so let's check all of them out!


This was a video for their buzz single, which didn't chart, but the song eventually found its way to the album's deluxe edition. It's a catchy, summery song, and the video matches that vibe perfectly. The boys are playing in a backyard filled with toilet paper, as well as parodying a bunch of music videos that were popular at the time: Miley Cyrus - Wrecking Ball, Katy Perry - Roar, Justin Bieber - Beauty and a Beat and Lady Gaga - Applause. We can see that the boys aren't afraid of acting (and looking) ridiculous and showing some skin. They definitely left a big first impression with this video!


Me And My Broken Heart was the boys' first official single and their biggest hit to date. The video is worthy of a spy movie adaptation: it's full of scams, con artists, hot girls and so many plot twists you'll get motion sickness. Let's just say you'll have to watch it twice to catch all that's happening and try and figure out who's doing what. Of course, there's also the unexpected ending. This is probably their best video so far.


The boys continue with their movie plots in the music video for Wait On Me, another massive song. This one includes a forbidden romance and some fancy outfits for everyone. Just like in the previous video, there's an (un)expected ending. In fact, the video was premiered as an interactive video, where viewers were able to choose between different outcomes.


Unlike the previous videos, the band members don't appear in this video, except for a small cameo in the form of a picture on a wall. Instead, the video is about a relationship between a guy and a girl. We see the girl alone in a hotel room, with flashbacks of the time she spent with the guy. Without revealing any spoilers, let's just say the video is a bit creepy and you shouldn't expect a happy ending. That was a spoiler, right? Sorry...


Rixton's latest video, for We All Want The Same Thing, is again totally different from their other videos. There's no convoluted plots, just lots of bad hair and outdated clothes. At the start of the video, the boys enter a studio, but as they go through a curtain, they find themselves in an alternate reality - the 70s. The rest of the video is basically a 70s dance party - even the camera technique is appropriate. After seeing all of those outfits and hairstyles, I'm glad I didn't grow up in that period.

That's it for now, until the boys grace us with some new video, maybe for Appreciated or I Like Girls? Which one of these is your fave and which song would you like to see get a video? After the 70s-inspired We All Want The Same Thing, maybe we'll get a futuristic vibe in the next one, with Jake and the boys as cyborgs, who knows...
