I kept hearing songs featuring this loud, brave, gorgeous, and a bit sad voice. A random dance track from David Guetta. A tune off the last Hunger Games soundtrack. A hook from an Eminem song. A collaboration with singer/songwriter Greg Laswell. WHO IS THIS LADY? She’s the wonderful Sia Furler, who hails from Australia, and has written songs for Britney Spears, Rihanna, Katy Perry, and is a talented, fascinating goddess. Have you not seen the video for Chandelier yet? It’s haunting. The song is incredible….
Recently, Sia performed three songs on Jimmy Kimmel’s show, and they’re great. She prefers to perform with her back to the audience, and let the dancers/performance artists interpret the songs. I dig this. Elastic Heart is featured on The Hunger Games Catching Fire soundtrack, but I’m guessing it’ll be on her new album, 1000 Forms of Fear, too….
She also did Big Girls Cry & Chandelier, but since the performance of Chandelier is sort of similar to the video above, I’ll just post Big Girls Cry….
Now excuse me while I go listen to all of her previous albums and geek out and stuff. I will give a shout out to her cover of Madonna’s Oh Father – it’s great.
Got any good Sia related things I should check out? Let me know.
