The latest New Music selections from the On The Record column in tomorrow’s edition of The Ticket. All tips for future New Music picks welcome below.

Young Man

Singer-songwriter Colin Caulfield first came to notice with a bunch of YouTube covers – Deerhunter’s Bradford Cox was a fan. These days, he’s getting rave reviews for his own shimmering, magical, post-Sufjan songs like “Up So Fast”, which are full of fascinating narratives and progressions.

Bobby

New Vermont-based outfit starring Mountain Man’s Mollie Sarle who will be touring with Low Anthem in the next few months. Tunes like “Sore Spores” sound like a vamped-up MM with a big, bright, trippy hook to snare your ears. Expect lots of ink about them post-SXSW in March.

Cat’s Eyes

Ready for a band who connect The Horrors, opera and The Vatican? Cat’s Eyes is Horrors’ frontman Farris Badwin and Canadian soprano Rachel Zeffira, a duo who played their first ever gig at St Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican in front of a clutch of red-hatted cardinals and other mere mortals. Debut album coming in May and you can download “Not A Friend” here.
