Belfast pop sensations on the crest of a wave
By Maureen Coleman
The group took over the Stena Caledonia for the video for their debut single Speed of Love.
The lads were keen to promote Belfast in their video, so their manager Gerry Brown approached Stena Line for permission to board.
"They are local boys and we wanted to use Belfast as a backdrop to illustrate that," he said.
"They are a great group of lads with loads of talent. Their debut single Speed of Love was written by Howie of the Backstreet Boys so they have great support within the music industry."
The band, which has also received local support from River Island and Peter Marks, hope to release the single onboard the Stena HSS in September.
Captain of the Stena Caledonia Robin White said he was delighted to welcome the boys on board the ship.
"At Stena Line we are always keen to support local talent in any way we can and it was a pleasure to have Wot Nxt filming on board the Stena Caledonia," he said.
"They were kind enough to leave me a copy of the single and I must admit, it is very catchy.
"We are looking forward to seeing our ship appear in the video and we wish them all the best for the future."
