Sia – ‘Sunday’
I know I just posted on her but I couldn’t resist this song. Much more upbeat this song will definitely make it into a lot of hangover/come down compilations. I was just talking to Sophie and we were surprised at her relatively low profile locally, considering her popularity elsewhere in the world and the calibre of talent she’s worked with. Usually Australia would be quick in claiming such an artist in the name of national pride. Perhaps she has not done enough tours here? Maybe Australians don’t dig the post trip-hop songs that she linger on. Whatever the reason, her story is yet another example of how moving out of such a small and restrictive town as Adelaide could be the best move any musician can make. As musically diverse as Australia wants to be the small population and isolated location restricts any ambitious artist. Sia is currently on tour all over UK and the US, check her site for details. She’s got a pretty cool video too.
