Following her hypnotizing, Pharrell-wowing debut “Alaska” was never going to be easy, but Maggie Rogers is back with another single. According to Rogers, “Dog Years” is “about a day I skipped class to stay in bed and make frozen pizza with a boy I loved.” It’s also, among other things, “about being a good friend and never having enough time.” And while it may be too early to tell, this intersection between personal ephemera and affirming clichés seems to be a common theme of Rogers’ work. Less texturally rich than “Alaska,” “Dog Years” is still enchanting, with Rogers’s distinctive voice floating over a subdued soundscape. Listen below.
