Single review: Our City (2019)
By Rockfiend Publications Scotland
‘Our City’ by Jeanice Lee
Released 27 September 2019
Review by Iain McArthur
Edinburgh’s own Jeanice Lee has released a new song in support of her former home town of Hong Kong. It really struck a chord with me, partly because I visited the city earlier this year, but mostly because it’s exceptionally good.
You can tell it’s not a folky protest song from the strident electric guitar opening and the big sound captured by Bryan Ramage (Ramage Productions/Ramage Inc). What follows is 5 minutes of articulate fire and anger from Jeanice, topped off with a bold guitar solo and the defiant mantra of ‘Our City is Standing on our Feet’. It’s powerful stuff and worthy of your attention.
