This Time by Virginia Marcs: Review
Virginia Marcs’ indie-pop features alluring vocals and genuine narrative. In 2016, she first got the attention of Idlewild Magazine. Marcs’ new EP, Reckoning, is a tale of daring self-discovery and resilience, and its title song, “This Time” is a melodic beacon of advocacy for women. The track is a mix of interesting genres, it has a distinct sense of indie, with some elements of baroque pop, and is sort of reminiscent of music from a delightful archaic period in time.
Within a stellar unity of jangly guitars, soft percussion, and bass lines, Virginia’s sentimental and powerful voice soars through. Her ability as a musician is quite dynamic, and her vocal range is truly impeccable. The artist is able to give a performance that is very touching, and you can’t help but be captivated by her alluring presence on the record. “This Time” has a remarkable sway to it, it somewhat reminds me of the music of Damien Rice in “Cheers Darlin”. Everything about Virginia’s music just oozes style and finesse maintaining a very moody atmosphere throughout the track.
I enjoyed listening to the song’s progressive mechanics. Especially at the end, when the vocals go full throttle and the instrumental ascension rolls in like dynamite going off. Overall, the explosion of rhythm that is present throughout Virginia’s track is rigorous and it is evident in her passionate singing performance. If you’re in the mood for a fresh perspective in the music industry, then “This Time” is right for you.
