We're back with another installment of Music Video Monday! Yes, we know, it has been a while... But we only like to share music video gems. And we have one.
Sia, the incredibly talented, under-appreciated, Australian singer/songwriter has produced another instant-classic. (In case you missed it, check out her music video for "Clap Your Hands")
Just watch it, trust us. It's definitely unique!
The clip is a perfect juxtaposition of beautiful and creepy. The choreography is nothing short of brilliant. The cinematographer even better. But the clip gets it soul by the performance of Maddie Ziegler, apparently of Dance Moms fame (really, who knew that.) The only thing you need to know is that she is a phenomenal dancer - oh, and she's 11 years old.
Sia & Daniel Askill direct this clip with the precision, the vision and the quirkiness the track deserves. In our opinion, the clip is not as weird as the award winning Clap Your Hands but definitely a better, more unique piece.
Sia's Chandelier music video... We give it: five spuds.
Also, below is the extended director's cut . Well worth the watch, though you'll be taken off-site.
