Nashville artist Townsend drops some real topics on us with his new track “Prisoner.” The song is a vocalization of songwriter John Townsend’s anxiety and entrapment inside his own head.
Despite it being on the less-heavy side of what I would post about, the track carries a lot of weight in content. Primarily acoustic guitar focused, with incorporated elements of electronic and rock music, the song has a nice mix of feeling. The combination of acoustic and distorted electric guitar is a difficult balance to achieve smoothly, and this song does it! The drums are also a nice touch moving from a less to more involved progression from the slower to higher intensity sections. The song really picks up on the latter half with some nice electric guitar tone.
Give a listen to Townsend’s new track and feel the acoustic and electric blend!
