10 Cool New Pop Songs to Get You Through The Week: Nao, Katy B, Carlie Hanson & More

As the UK pop star’s first new solo single in five years, “Under My Skin” finds Katy B sounding impressively refreshed, crooning about spoiled romance with renewed energy and subtle grace. P2J, who produced and co-wrote the track, provides Katy B with busy percussion that still emits a sense of loss. -Jason Lipshutz

Magdalena Bay, “Secrets (Your Fire)”

L.A. duo Magdalena Bay presents a ‘90s mainstream revival through an indie-pop lens on their riotous new single “Secrets (Your Fire)” — seriously, listen to the opening squelch and try not to think about Spice Girls’ “Say You’ll Be There.” With their Mercurial World EP out in October, Magdalena Bay keeps getting better ahead of it. –Lipshutz

Johnny Orlando, “Daydream”

TikTok star Johnny Orlando possesses a natural charisma that translates to shimmery dance-pop on “Daydream,” which pushes its breathy come-ons (“It’s pretty cold on the West Coast / But you’d look hot in New York”) toward a feeling of restlessness on the hook, with highly effective results. -Lipshutz

Loyal Lobos, “Hate My Face”

Fans of artists like Soccer Mommy and Snail Mail should crank up “Hate My Face,” the new alt-pop gem from Colombia-born singer-songwriter Loyal Lobos that locates the precise balance between the intimate and anthemic. Huddle closer to the confessional verses, then howl along with the chorus here. -Lipshutz
