Not many people know about the Australian singer Sia. Those who do likely discovered her through her appearance on The Voice or as the featured singer on the David Guetta track “Titanium.”
I discovered Sia through her older single “Clap Your Hands.”
The single, however, came out in 2010, so I can’t exactly be hipster and say I discovered her ages ago.
I first heard the song in a Hollister store in my mall. Then another day, I heard it again in I think a Bath & Body Works store. When I heard the song yet again in a movie theatre bathroom (which was, oddly, adjacent to the mall), I was like That’s it, I’m Shazaming it!
It was one of those songs that grows on you. And once it’s grown, you absolutely love it and can’t get enough … even two years later. Take a listen!
Again, don’t ask me about the music video. I guess a lot of music I listen to comes attached with unique music videos.
So this song; it’s got a beat to it without being an obnoxious mainstream club hit. It’s humble, but isn’t lethargic. It’s got a unique sound to it. Bubbly, upbeat, happy, and a bit quirky, the song is one of my favorite tracks for the summer. The instrumentation reminds me about the beach. I love the beach. A lot.
And if you think this song is good, give a listen to the whole album We Are Born. It’s different, yet original and catchy! 😀
*Footnote: Once I downloaded the single, I added it as the first song on a mixtape-CD I burned for my car (which I had just got). So this song will always remind me about driving my new (pre-owned) car in the summer. Good memories… 🙂
