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 New Music tips below.

Splashh

An Australian duo based in London, Splashh have begun to feature in despatches from talent scouts won over by the scuzzy pop, beach-punk grooves and sunny disposition shown on tunes like “All I Wanna Do”. Early days yet when it comes to live shows (they did feature at the Great Escape the other week), so keep an eye out for them.

Decentfolk

There’s been an impressive run of one-man electronica outfits from Ireland in recent times and Cork producer Decentfolk can join that pack. Aside from playing at nights like Modulation and The Hobo Convention, Decentfolk has been putting together atmospheric and engaging emotional bleepers like “Tuffs” and a beguiling remix of Joanna Newsom’s “Bridges & Balloons”.

Sunless 97

Sparkling, charming, dreamy electropop from the London-based trio fronted by ex-Larrikin Love dude Ed Leeson. Debut tracks on their “Making Waves” EP were produced by Kwes and were chockablock with warm, ethereal hooks.
