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.


Lucius’ beautiful, infectious sweet and dark earworms like “Hey Doreen” are total wows. Fronted by Jess Wolfe & Holly Laessig, the Brooklyn-based band’s debut album “Wildewoman” is due for release in a few months’ time on Mom+Pop.


Dublin-based newbies with a neat line in strong, well-constructed, radio-friendly alternative nuggets all brilliantly marshalled by Unamae Cahill’s confident belter of a voice, which also sounds swell on her solo Soundcloud tracks. Check out “Fortune Teller” and three other tracks here.

Joshua Burnside

From Lisbane, Co Down, Joshua Burnside’s rumbling, brooding, powerful, energetic folk-pop comes with many different angles and twists. The Queens University student has already recorded a handful of EPs, with the magnetic “Black Dog Sin”, from the latest “If You’re Goin’ That Way”, the one to check out.
