Maggie Rogers Makes Us Feel The Warm & Fuzzies On “Dog Years”

Maggie Rogers

We were first introduced to the stunning voice and unique production skills of Maggie Rogers on her single Alaska. Now we’re getting a follow-up introduction with the sublime sounds of Dog Years, with added news Rogers will be releasing her debut EP in February 2017!

Starting out with wholesome sounds full of nature with seemingly a fife making an appearance, Dog Years starts out making us feel like we’re sitting by a campfire with mates banging on random pieces of metal from around the house.

Suddenly, rolling synth bass broodingly envelopes the track while Rogers’ vocals soar with her beautiful falsetto and harmonies. Dog Years ebb and flows with the passionate vocals of Rogers’ beautifully filling the track with raw emotion, floating effortlessly atop her mix of synthetic and organic production (she often uses bird calls as the tones for backing vocals and synths).

Rogers released this beautiful description of what Dog Years is about: “Dog Years is about a day I skipped class to stay in bed and make frozen pizza with a boy I loved. Dog Years is about dance parties in the kitchen. Dog Years is about chocolate milk and the Tompkins Square dog park. Dog Years is about a thank you note. Dog Years is about change, about loving and leaving and still loving, about trusting yourself, about trusting the universe, about being a good friend and never having enough time.”
