Maggie Rogers finishes chapter one with ‘Split Stones’
2016 and 2017 have been huge years for Maggie Rogers. The ‘folktronica’ singer-songwriter became a viral hit when a video surfaced online of Pharrell Williams listening to her track ‘Alaska’ during a songwriting masterclass. The single became a hit and Maggie has been touring worldwide for months now. She released a few more singles which were collected on her impressive debut EP Now That The Light Is Fading. Now that her tour has come to an end Rogers is ready to reflect and she ends chapter one of her career with the release of the single ‘Split Stones’.

On her social media pages Rogers explained that the songs she released so far were all about her experiences in her last semester at college and she is now ready to write about new experiences, but to do so, she needs a little break. To thank her fans for their support and making her tour in such a success she treats them to the beautiful single ‘Split Stones’ which is perfectly in line with what we have heard from Maggie Rogers so far. She elegantly balances between folk and electronic pop with personal lyrics, soaring vocals, an undeniable chorus driven by exquisitely produced beats. I can’t wait for her next chapter, but ‘Split Stones’ will keep me satisfied for at least a while, as it underlines every element that makes her such an exciting new artist!
