Here are 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

Psychologist

London-based singer and producer Iain Woods should prepare to expect a lot of attention for his tender, dramatic songs and streamlined, haunting atmospherics. He can also expect many people to mention James Blake and The xx when they hear his “Waves Of OK EP” (including a cover of Tim Buckley’s “Song to the Siren”), as recorded in a church in Stoke Newington

Bleeding Knees Club

Yet another fine Australian band for you to befriend. Brisbane’s Bleeding Knees Club are Alex Wall and Jordan Malane who specialise in punky surf riffalama and slamming wham-bam-thank-you-mam pop tunes which don’t overstay their welcome. Check out “Have Fun” and “Bad Guys” and join the club.

Big Sleep

Manchester band formerly known as Drive Like I Do prepare for their impending close-up with stadium-sized pop songs like “Sex” and “Ghosts”. Live, as seen recently on tour with Little Comets, they’ve already got the hooks and the swagger to take it the next level.
