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.

Holy Child

Los Angeles boy/girl duo whose electropop gem “Happy With Me” is one of the giddy delights of the season. While that tune will be getting a lot of attention from industry and early adaptors, you should also check out “Diamonds On the Rebound” and “Best Friends” from Liz Nistico and Louie Diller.


New London-based group with a great calling card in the atmospheric, impressive, enchanting “Cry No More”. There are shades of London Grammar and Florence & The Machine in the song’s dramatic span so you can understand why the record label folks are chomping at the bit here.

Ben Khan

Beautiful future-soul with some fascinating tweaks and twirls in the soundbed is what’s on offer on “Eden” from the London singer-songwriter. Like previous track “Drive (Part 1)”, it will remind you of Jai Paul’s off-kilter blend, but Khan is very much his own man.
