10 Cool New Pop Songs To Get You Through The Week: Rina Sawayama, Yungblud, Austin Mahone & More

Rina Sawayama broke through in 2020 on the strength of forward-thinking pop confections like “XS” and “Commes des Garcons (Like The Boys)”; “Lucid,” a new single that will appear on the deluxe edition of her Sawayama album, is perhaps her most immediate banger yet, a mesmerizing dreamscape that demonstrates her confidence while juggling multiple hooks.

Nicole Millar, “Boring!”

“It’s boring, it’s boring / And all I wanna do is take you home, until the morning,” indie-pop auteur Nicole Millar sings to open her new single, her gentle delivery quickly deepening to show that she means business. Whatever the specific “it” is that Millar is singing about, she convinces the listener pretty quickly to follow her down the rabbit hole.

Silver Sphere, “Football Game”

You don’t have to check the liner notes (do such things still exist?) to realize within a few seconds of Chicago native Silver Sphere (Sophie Cates)’s new single that it was created with Dylan Brady of 100 Gecs. “Football Game” is glitchy, slightly detached and enthralling in the same style that the producer has used to make a name for himself, all while Cates presents her engaging perspective.

Austin Mahone feat. Frut, “You Got Me”

After returning last month with the sensual “Summer Love,” Austin Mahone continues to set up his next proper era with “You Got Me,” a rhythmic, spacious single that’s marked by echoing vocals and takes its time to shimmy over to the dance floor. The subtleties shine through here, and keep up Mahone’s momentum.
