How does music just seem to accumulate? I cleared iTunes out the other day and had a few of those “oh my goodness why do I have this?” moments, ahem, does anyone remember The Cartoons, ooh eee ooh ah ah ting tang walla walla bing bang? …No? That'll just be me then?
To some my tastes in music now will seem horrifically dull; I could probably count all the artists I listen to on one hand. Does anyone else get so addicted to something that it becomes all they listen to? I’ve had my Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nirvana, The Decemberists & Florence & the Machine addictions and I’m now I’m firmly on to Zero 7 and Sia, but more so Sia. I’m definitely a down-tempo kinda girl now.
Sia doesn’t get enough recognition, at least I don’t think so; not for someone who’s not only a talented singer but a fabulous songwriter too. If something more up-tempo is what you’re after I’d give her new album We Are Born or a listen otherwise Colour the Small One will always be a classic and Lady Croissant will be all the proof you need that Sia’s voice is something special.
