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.

Rhye

Los Angeles-based duo Rhye’s debut “Open EP” for Innovative Leisure is full of mesmerising, slow-motion, soulful hooks and perfectly pitched Sade pop. Not much is known about the pair, but we hear there’s a debut album in the can so more tunes like “Open” can hopefully be expected soon.

Churches

“Lies” is the only evidence available to date from Glasgow outfit Churches, but it’s more than enough to get the wow factor going. A pulsating, monstrous tune with plenty of dramatic peaks within its brooding cinematic, hip-hop walls, we look forward to more from Scottish indie scene stalwarts Iain Cook, Martin Doherty and Lauren Mayberry.

Wild Cub

Smashing synth-pop with sharply idiosyncratic tunes galore (like the sparkling “Wild Light”) from Nashville duo Keegan DeWitt and Jeremy Bullock. Debut album “Youth” is due for release later in the summer and should be noted by fans of off-kilter melodic pop.
