In this feature, The New York Times said, “‘Heard It in a Past Life’ is a collection of buoyant electronic pop songs, but the lyrics are unmistakably the work of an introvert struggling to recalibrate.” Rolling Stone awarded the album four stars and hailed it as “a laser focused statement with nary a wasted lyric or synth line.” Declaring it“astonishingly good,” the Associated Press observed, “Over 12 tracks, Rogers explores the curiously fertile melding of folk and dance, with her distinctive and warm voice floating amid harmonies or a relentless industrial beat. So much pressure has been placed on this young Maryland artist but she’s delivered on that early promise – an exciting album, true to her vision.” Consequence of Sound noted, “If anything this record is a formal announcement: new queen of indie pop, Maggie Rogers is here to stay.” She was recently named as the first YouTube Artist On The Rise (AOTR) of 2019 and a Twitter Music #ArtistToFollow.
