Rex Orange County

The perfect lo-fi soundtrack to carefree, smitten teen years

Liveurope concert:
The first pan-European initiative supporting concert venues in their efforts to promote emerging European music.

The hipster-candy-of-the-month hails from Grayshott, somewhere in the countryside between London & Brighton. Lo-fi songwriting tempered with a whiff of jazz, indie-rock and soul, inspired by heartwarming puppy love. His second release ‘Apricot Princess’ (out since April ’17) is bursting with ideas and the only recently 19-year-old Alex O’Conner behind Rex Orange County integrates them all to form one brilliant whole. He can also be found as a guest on ‘Foreword’, the opening track on Tyler, The Creator’s genius album ‘Flower Boy’.

For fans of Cosmo Pyke, King Krule, Tyler, The Creator, Raury, Declan McKenna, being young and in love …
In the press “Rex Orange County is the vibrant and vulnerable songwriter his generation needs, a talent to be in awe of!” – NME
“Teenage joy personified. Woozy songs perfectly capture the feeling of being young and in love.” – THE FADER
Fun fact For the majority of the album he sings about his love for his girlfriend Thea, who in turn writes him songs as a sign of affection. “The fictional couple we're most like is probably Beauty and The Beast”, says the lovey dovey pair.



Started a half hour late. Concert was very short. No encores. Dude wasn't feeling it, clearly couldn't wait to get out of there. A shame since the songs are really great.
Was zeer kort, ook geen laatste extra nummertje, attitude van de artiest was met veel tegenzin. Jammer want ik keek er naar uit. Voor de rest was het goed gezongen en een leuk zaaltje :)
