THECITYISOURS - Release New Single Video "Shame"

In a striking and poignant new release, TheCityIsOurs has unveiled their latest single 'Shame', resonating deeply with the raw and emotional journey of their lead singer's personal experiences. Since openly revealing his true identity, the singer has faced a challenging path towards societal acceptance, a struggle that profoundly influences the lyrics of this powerful song.

TheCityIsOurs, through this single, has not only created a poignant and emotionally charged song but also made a bold statement about acceptance, identity, and the struggles faced by the LGBTQ+ community. 'Shame' stands as a beacon of hope and resilience, encouraging listeners to embrace their true selves and to fight against societal norms that seek to define and restrict. It’s a powerful reminder that, even in the darkest of times, one can find the strength to push through and that, in the end, being true to oneself is the most important victory of all.

Personal statement from Oli Duncanson (vocals): "Shame was written about the feeling of not being able to accept your sexuality; an aspect of yourself that can't be changed, and how it makes you feel that you don't belong anywhere. It affects every way in which you navigate through life and won't leave you until you come to terms and embrace it."
