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.


Rhode Island-born and Stockholm-raised with spells in Brazil, Tunisia and Portugal too, Mapei is a well-travelled pop singer with some fantastic depth to her soulful songs like “Don’t Wait”. While her 2009 debut EP was on a hip-hop tip, the switch to singing, especially with all those gospel and doo-wop frills, is hugely welcome.


Brisbane-based three-piece hitting all the heights with supersmart sounds and a really strong, attractive sense of melody to their ambient electronic pop strut. Debut single “Lost Track Of Time” is a beaut, awash with noir grooves and an infectious gallery of hooks.


Are you looking for the new Lorde? You can be sure that Auckland siblings Georgia and Caleb Nott will feature on many A&R radars in the coming months because of you-know-who. “Bridges” is certainly a reason for excitement, a moody indie/electronica track which exudes pop promise and potential.
