Now That the Light Is Fading is the first major-label release from Maggie Rogers, a modern singer/songwriter who first started releasing indie digital EPs back in 2012. This EP arrives five years later, which may be why it seems eerily assured. Unlike many debuts, Rogers isn't stumbling through either her songs or sound. These five songs -- all anchored in atmospheric electronics -- are assured, tightly constructed compositions graced with glassy electronics. Rogers' vocals wind up giving these otherwise icy productions some warmth, and if the five songs all adhere to a general aesthetic, they're also varied. "Color Song" is a tone poem, "Alaska" feels as intimate as a straight folk song, "On + Off" percolates with a distinct claustrophobic rhythm, "Dog Years" is as stylish as Elle Goulding, and "Better" is a bittersweet denouement. All combined, this adds up to a rich and impressive official debut.
