Maggie Rogers quickly became a favorite of ours with the release of her viral song “Alaska” which won over the hearts of her countless fans. Now the young, quickly rising artist has teamed up with The North Face for her latest single “Split Stones.”
“I took the first sound samples for ‘Split Stones’ on a month-long backpacking trip in Oregon during the summer of 2013; I’ve been collecting samples and piecing the song together in bedroom studios and trails ever since. I’m super excited about combining the two things I love-technology and the environment-to create a way that people can hear the song, but also feel a little bit a part of the action and process that inspired it.” – Maggie Rogers
With her signature sound blending electronic and organic elements, her sound is the perfect fit for the nature-based campaign. After the success Rogers saw with “Alaska,” the overnight sensation went on to release her impressive 5-track EP Now That The Light Is Fading and has shared her first single since. “Split Stones” maintains the signature indie electronic vibe we’ve come to love from Maggie with a more upbeat vibe as the track contains samples of nature she’s collected herself. Enjoy!
