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.

Ryan Vail

Derry lad Ryan Vail and musical sidekick Katie Cosgrave have been gathering lots of plaudits for their tender, soulful, small hours’ melodies and harmonies. Supports for Jon Hopkins and Luke Vibert, remixes for Soak, an EP for Only and appearances at Other Voices Derry next month are reasons to watch this space.

Chloe Howl

You can understand why Sony signed the 17 year old Brit when you take a listen to “No Strings”. A pop tune with a serious attitude, this bright, magnetic earworm is little bit Lily Allen here and a little bit grimey there. Looking forward to hearing more from the Howl camp in the coming months.

LULS

Swaggering art-rock from the London three-piece whose “Never Let It Go” shows that you can never write out guitar music. The band have already supported Crystal Castles and are gaining a lot of radio love for their third single and its exciting, epic, emotional hooks.
