What comes to your mind when you think of Tang Siu Hau? The singing competition The Voice or the theme song "Half a Cup of Water" from the 2010 TVB sitcom Some Day? It's hard to think of a third thing to represent Siu Hau because she was always underrated during her five years under TVB. After joining Vicky Fung and Victor Tse's Frenzi Music in 2015, her talents were discovered through various surprising singles including "Elegance and Vulgarity" and "Strength and Weakness." Taking audiences away from the depressive world of her debut EP, the mini-album Inner Voice explores the power of communication in mutual understanding and self-discovery.
The first plug "Mixed" (Track 1) continues her last EP's experimental spirit with Vicky Fung's psychedelic melody. Pong Nan's stream-of-consciousness-style lyrics delicately depict different subtle body movements to express an ambiguous relationship: "Rubbing a finger along the rim of a cup is better than chatting up someone passionately / Eyes blinking beneath the eyebrows like camera shutters." Siu Hau highlights the song's sensual vibe with her seductive vocals. The whispering voices in the middle eight further add an aura of mystery to the song.
Self-talk can help people better understand themselves. However, negative self-communication can lead to deep despair. The protagonist in "Soul Writer" (Track 2) keeps saying that she is happy but Siu Hau's sorrowful vocals betray her distress. Albert Leung uses numerous negators and positive words to show the emotional contrast between the song's pessimistic mood and his confident lyrics: "No / Don't worry / I'm brave / The sun still shines brightly" and "Listen / My voice / That excitement." The gloomy piano and string accompaniment provides a beautiful backdrop that perfectly suits Siu Hau's feather-light high notes.
Singers are often classified according to their music styles. However, instead of developing in a specific music field, Siu Hau focuses on the messages delivered by her songs. Jumping from genre to genre, Inner Voice examines both intra- and interpersonal communication from various perspectives so people from all walks of life can find inspiration on their soul-searching journeys.
