Sia-Crazy: "Some People Have Real Problems"
There is actually one good album to come out of '08. It's Sia's Some People Have Real Problems.
Those who enjoy acid jazz and more specifically the music of Zero 7 might already be on the Sia ship. She provided vocals for Zero 7 for a while before moving to London from her native Australia.
Sia now goes solo.
Her unique sound coupled with a gendered look render her easily visible and her lyrics are a 'poetic blend' of melancholy, anxiety, and hope.
Sia's voice is the kind that reminds one of everything and nothing at the same time. And this is why she is claiming much presence in my current playlist.
Starbucks is now distributing her new album which can only mean one thing: Sia has arrived not only critically but also commercially.
