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

The Holidays

Sunnysideup harmonies and wide-eyed melodic pop from a Sydney band with a couple of humdinger singles to their name (check out excellent current release “Golden Sky” in particular) and a debut album called “Post Paradise” to come next month.

Ghost Estates

Dublin-based newbies featuring ex-members of 8Ball and Sickboy making a hugely alluring and promising rattle if current anthemic demo tune “October” is an indication of where they’re at, which you can listen to here.

Sun Airway

Philadelphia duo Patrick Marsciell (sound designer) and Jon Bathmus (vocals) keep it gloriously mellow with slow-motion, dreamy, hazy electronic chimes and tones. Debut album “Nocturne of Exploded Crystal Chandelier” to be released on Dead Oceans in October. Download tracks and remixes from the band here.
