The latest New Music selections from the On The Record column in The Ticket. All tips for future New Music picks welcome below.

Kisses

Los Angles duo featuring Jesse Kivel (also in New Music faves Princeton) and fashion blogger Zinzi Edmundson making bittersweet, breezy disco-pop tunes like “Bermuda” or new single “People Can Do the Most Amazing Things”.

The Darling Sins

Wexford-based Leni Morrison and Joe Harpur’s chance meeting at a gig in Dublin was the starting point for a bunch of raw, hugely promising slow-motion, blues tunes with plenty of crunch in the mix like “Pebbles” and “Magic In Our Air”. Listen to tunes from the band here
