Here are the latest New Music selections from the On The Record column in tomorrow’s edition of The Ticket. Please feel free to share tips below or check out all past New Music selections here.

Kimberly Anne

“Bury It There” is the tune to have you going “who the hell is that?” The answer to that question is smart, sussed South London singer-songwriter Kimberly Anne, a Brit School graduate with punky DIY spirit and spiky pop-folk heart.

James Bay

Formerly a guitar student at the Brighton Institute of Modern Music, James Bay is currently making waves with tracks like “When We On Fire”. From Hitchin in Hertfordshire, Bay has a great rasping blues voice and a good line in infectious, radio-ready grooves.

Little Bear

Derry-based four-piece whose “I’d Let You Win” is one of the most beguiling tunes we’ve heard in quite some time. Good reports from their appearance at Hard Working Class Heroes in Dublin last month too. As tipped by BBC Across the Line’s Paul McClean.
