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.

Their Wedding

Their Wedding may be keeping schtum on their vital details – they’re a duo from Los Angeles and that’s the height of it – but debut track “Want” is a beaut. Taken from their forthcoming “Take” EP, “Want” is a moody, yearning piece of blue-eyed pop.

Classroom Battles

Irish-French collective specialising in gloriously infectious electropop. “Call To Arms”, the new single from Tigrane Minassian, Trish Kavanagh, Martin Clancy and Vasileios Gourgourinis, is a bit of an earworm in the making. Watch out for their “This Week’s Question” EP next month and live dates to come.


From Nashville, Coin are a four-piece act with just the right amount of sugar, sass and bittersweet glee in their indie pop. “Atlas” is the winner you need to get to know, a tune with a skyscraper chorus kicking out the jams with some majestic guitars and shimmering synths.
