Brian Eaton’s single, “Defenseless,” is a gritty, acoustic rock song centered around the tragedy of war, and is featured on the dystopian rocker’s new album, Hard Bent. Despite the dark nature and gut-wrenching lyrics, the music has an alluring attraction in which the listener becomes fully engrossed. Eaton delivers a rough and powerful approach to his vocals, while layering an electric slide guitar as an emotional Richter scale over a bed of acoustic guitars and strings. The lyrics project the feeling of helplessness so many touched by war feel from its effects and aftershocks. Echoes of Pink Floyd and Porcupine Tree can be heard within the recording.
