Chandelier | Sia


Any new Sia material is usually simply great material, and after spending four years without a full-length solo studio album, she has delivered once again in her new single, "Chandelier."

Her voice hits all-time beauty in the chorus of this song, which is quite evident considering when I first heard it, I could only say one phrase: "Holy shit." Sia and Florence Welch are the only two women in the industry I know that can belt notes out like that without sounding as strained as Christina Aguilera. The fact that people like to claim this song should have been handed to Rihanna is crazy: She would never be able to soar through those notes with such ease and grace.

The lyrics hide a melancholy background of a drinking problem, which can be seen visually in the lyric video for the song as well as lines like "One, two, three, drink / Throw 'em back 'til I lose count" and "But I'm holding on for dear life / Won't look down, won't open my eyes / Keep my glass full until morning light / 'Cause I'm just holding on for tonight."
