Review: Lina Cooper – ‘This Time’



An impressive pop talent from the distant lands of Donetsk, Ukraine, Lina Cooper has been making her mark on the international music scene with her unique approach to music and marketing. Easily one of Eastern Europe’s most exciting new singers, she’s been impressing fans and critics alike with a deft blend of bold, evocative lyrics, sultry vocals, and pop-rock anthemics. Early in 2020, Lina made her mark with the brilliant ‘By Abe’s’, an instantly enjoyable single that shone with a true sense of magic, and now, she’s back with another seminal, rock-infused release.


The latest in a string of impressive singles, ‘This Time’ arrives as a dedicated pop anthem, one that shies away from more rustic tones and dives fearlessly into glossy, pitch-perfect sounds. Featuring Lina’s classically smooth vocals that soar over waves of acoustic guitar and building percussive beats, the new single breathes with a dynamic and unmistakably catchy energy that elevates it above the mainstream and into the upper echelons of modern pop anthems.


There’s a soulful beating heart to the single, one that permeates through every note, offering a gentle indie feel that no one will be able to ignore. With flourishes of dual vocals, recordings from an old call, and seamless transitions throughout, there is a sense of grace and beauty in ‘This Time’ that gets forgotten by most modern pop tracks



Throughout her music career, Lina has always tried to use her songs as a way to take her listener on a journey through her eventful life, offering an artistic insight into the days of a hopeless romantic, and on ‘This Time’, she’s done just that. While the bright pop shine and vibrant acoustic hooks might hold your focus, it’s the soul and heart of the song that makes it so enjoyable, proving that magic of Lina’s music beyond and shadow of a doubt.
