Song Review: Keeva Mak's "佩鎗的茱麗葉/Revolver Juliet"

Talented and underrated young HK singer Keeva Mak's latest plug "Revolver Juliet" boosts lovely melody and vocals.  The mood and pace of the song is refreshing, as it possesses a feel that is neither too heavy or too airy.  It is a sweet and beautifully produced song that boosts a serene and thoughtful tone.  The use of instruments like the piano, guitar, violin, and drums are integrated beautifully into the song, something I love about great Cantopop.  I particularly like the climax with the drums and sound effects used.  

Keeva's strong, clear, and sweet vocals also faintly remind me of singers from the golden age of Cantopop back in the late 80s and 90s.  There's something about them that leaves an impression on me, like those of the golden age.

From the beautiful composition to the vocals, everything about this single is well done and pleasing. Overall, the song just sounds magical.
