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.

George Ezra

Bristol-based singer-songwriter with a soulful, sand-blasted, blues voice and sparse, spine-tingling, elegant songs to match. Something here for fans of The Tallest Man On Earth, Daughter and Ben Howard.

Playlounge

London-based duo playing noisy, spikey, buzzy, oddly pop tunes on debut EP “Thrash Magic”. Playlounge sound a lot like their heroes (No Age, Japandroids, Lemonheads) without every veering into photocopy territory.

Animal Beats

Limerick-raised, Dublin-based indie kids pushing a rock/pop line with interesting hooks and riffs in the mix. “Curtains” is their strongest calling card to date, a tune which best catches what lead singer John McDonnell’s voice can do.
