If you like Troye Sivan, then Maggie Rogers is for you

October 15, 2019 — by Cici Xu

“I was walking through icy streams that took my breath away. Moving slowly through westward water over glacial plains,” pop singer Maggie Rogers sings in her song “Alaska.”  

Rogers came out with her first album, “Heard It In A Past Life,” in January, yet many people still do not know much about her work. Rogers’ dreamy, slow pop music, which is similar to the style of pop singer Troye Sivan, focuses on nature, and she films her music videos in forests. 

Her voice touched American rapper Pharrell Williams’s heart during his visit to New York University, where Rogers, a master student at NYU, played her music “Alaska” for him and left him in awe. He then strongly encouraged her to start her singing career. 

Rogers says she is an optimist, a feminist and an environmentalist.

“I feel a lot, maybe too much, but in a song, it always seems to be just enough,” Rogers wrote on her website.
