Yes it would work to a certain degree, also make sure you use acoustic plasterboard (Blue paper) which is a denser gypsum and designed for acoustic levels.

in my experience the 60mm of polystrene dosent pass an acoustic test we have just done one where we ripped out all the poly and dot and dabbed the whole wall with acoustic sheets of plaster board it passed the test with flying colours
