SINGLE REVIEW: Maggie Rogers – Love You For A Long Time

Earlier this year Maggie Rogers released her highly anticipated debut album ‘Heard It In A Past Life’ which was an honest collection of indie-pop songs packed with whole lot of emotions and personal reflections. This record was not only a perfect introduction to her growing artistry but also quickly became a early frontrunner for album of the year. 

Following a year of touring, the Maryland singer-songwriter has decided to release one more track before the year is out. ‘Love You For A Long Time’ is a dedication of devotion to her band, her fans and her love of art. It’s about feeding that internal connection you have to something and never wanting to let it go. It’s a hopeless romantic track that sonically grasps onto that groovy sentiment that summer embodies. 

“And in the morning when you pick me up and all the world is quiet except the mourning dove. I feel it in my body, know it in my mind. Oh I, I’m gonna love you for a long time” she sings during the soothing rhythmic hook. 

The contrast of the emotional and romantic lyrics with the groovy aspect of indie-pop production is something that immediately stands out. It’s a sonical continuation of the sound her debut record cemented and blends into the sounds of ‘Light On’ and ‘Fallingwater’ 

This track is a great way for her to thank her fans for the support they’ve given her throughout the process of the record and perfectly closes this chapter in her career.
