When Maggie Rogers made her Belgian stage debut two years ago at the AB Club, she left behind stickers that had “Maggie Rogers was here” written on them. The American who learned to play harp and banjo when she was very young was still covering Neil Young and The Sundays back then.
Her breakthrough hit “Alaska”, which had drawn the attention of none other than Pharell Williams when he was teaching a masterclass at her school, was already part of her concert at the AB Club, and it has been included on her major label debut Heard It in a Past Life, which was released last month. Danceable synth-folk, that feels like fireworks during a campfire.
