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

Elaine Mai

Galway-based singer-songwriter with a magnificent smoky slap of a voice who is already showing a strong hand when it comes to neat, nerve-tingling acoustic pop (check out “Softly” on her Bandcamp page). Playing Dublin’s Grand Social on Sunday and Dublin’s Workman’s Club on March 19

The Kill Van Kulls

One of the acts who made an impression on talent-spotters at last year’s In the City festival in Manchester, the Stockport four piece’s debut single “Fools Wish” is a thumping indie-pop gem and a tune which is going to entice a lot more folks to check them out.

Hooray for Earth

Expect a lot of love in the room over the coming months for this Boston-bred, New York-based band and their forthcoming debut album “True Loves”. Hugely impressive, rousing alternative pumps with an endearing groove-laden edge.
