Poisoned Town and Virtual Cut by Inner Voices

Hello all,
As some of you may remember, I reviewed two songs by Adam Brierley's solo project, Inner Voices, back in November. For the many of you who enjoyed his past releases, prepare yourselves because his next EP, Impact Statements, will be available soon. The Impact Statements track list is as follows:

1. Poisoned Town
2. Virtual Cut
3. Bend Your Mind
4. Stay In The Light

The theme of both Poisoned Town and Virtual Cut comes from Brierley's observation of the devastating aspects of street violence and its effects on many victims' friends and families. Poisoned Town, although is lyrically based on unfortunate events, has a catchy, smooth melody. Brierley dazzles the listener with his brilliant use of the synthesizer like always, but in this particular song he also includes a beautiful piano solo during the second half of the track. Of all his releases, I’d say this one is my favorite so far.

As for Virtual Cut, this one is an instrumental track. Its melody is extremely similar to that of Poisoned Town, and also includes the piano solo. Despite the lack of lyrics, the track is constructed in such a way that Brierley’s voice still manages to shine through. For reviews on the final two tracks please check out my last post. I’d definitely recommend keeping an out the release of Impact Statements!
