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.

The Royal Concept

Experienced bunch of Swedish musicians (who’ve played in bands with Robyn and others) now putting their best feet forward as The Royal Concept. One of the acts on a lot of lists after Eurosonic last weekend, check out their infectious indie-pop on tracks like “Gimme Twice” from their debut EP.

George Maple

London-based Australian singer and slo-mo pop proponent who first came on our radar through her “Bring You Down” collaboration with Flume, but her own material, like “Uphill” is just as thrilling. Currently working on her debut album with young guns Bondax and Two Inch Punch.

Josef Salvat

“This Life” is about all that’s known to date about singer/producer Josef Salvat, but this lovely belter of a tune is more than enough to be going on with. Let’s hope the Australian-in-London (a lot of them about this weather) and ex-law student comes with more tunes with hooks as good as this to satisfy the current A&R rush.
