New York vocalist, guitarist, and alternative pop artist Virginia Marcs comes with a powerful song entitled This Time. This Time is the first single from the upcoming EP Reckoning by Virginia Marcs. From being a big Madonna fan during her teens to becoming an opera singer and band leader, Virginia is a holistic musician and singer-songwriter. Hailing from St. Petersburg, Florida, Marcs’ music combines the best of influences from artists like Adele, Jeff Buckley, Tori Amos, and Kate Bush. Alternative rock, pop punk, indie folk, no genre is a challenge to her, evident in her latest release.
This Time begins with jangly guitar chords strumming around a prominent and imposing bass line. The passionate vocals of Virginia Marcs sing of emotional turmoil with fervour and impeccable chops. The lyrics reflect the pain and desire to transcend the regular sentimental hurt. The song approches a crescendo in the outro. We get to hear amazing vocal harmonies and stunning reverb production work creating a stunning sense of finality.
In This Time we see the right amount of innovation and emotion heralded by Jeff Buckley and Kate Bush with dazzling vocals like Adele. The production by Katie Buchanan is the right amount of technical finesse and arrangement wisdom which pushes Marcs’ vocals to the front. The music video for the song is directed by MTV VMA winner Alexander Hammer who has worked with the likes of Beyoncé and Lizzo. With This Time, Virginia Marcs has created a fiery pop anthem whose echoes will reverberate in every click of the repeat button.
