Maggie was always into country music. She started at NYU with the sole idea of her and a banjo, but she started appreciating dance music while studying in France. At that point, she discovered her own sound. And it is mesmerizing. The first time you hear it, you won’t believe how unique the sound is. I mean, just look at Pharrell’s face in the video beneath… It’s absolutely priceless.
Pharrell explains it so well: “you simply can’t compare Maggie Rogers’ music to anything else“.
(The song starts at 2:21.)
