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.


AKA Cork musician and Hush War Cry member Eoin French, a man coming out the solo gap with some hugely engaging and emotional electronic tunes. The lush, gorgeous “Tethered Bones” is what leads the way, but “Escariot” is also a hugely appealing and promising taster to ensure a lot of heavyweight traction for Talos.


Side-project from Jack Antonoff, guitarist with Fun., who is now aiming to provide similar sugar highs with tracks like “I Wanna Get Better”. Forthcoming debut album will be full of similarly embued ear-worms. FYI: Taylor Swift and Lena Dunham are fans.

Sasha Keable

Young London singer who has already featured on one best-selling album (check her out on “Voices” from Disclosure’s “Settle”), but whose own music bodes very well for her future. Her debut “Black Book EP” for Tinie Tempah’s Disturbing London label is a starting set of tunes, full of atmospheric peaks and beguiling hooks.
