Sia has come a long way in the past six months, from the shy extrovert who captured media attention with her You Tube video for ‘Buttons’ to an almost, nearly, not quite household name. Times are definitely changing for the New York based Aussie and the release of ‘The Girl You Lost’ is testament to her ever growing popularity. With no room for pleasantries or compromises, her latest release is strong, confident, infectiously melodic and immensely hummable romp through the highs and lows of Sia’s unique character and up beat independence. And as always Sia’s vocal brings with it a much needed and long overdue burst of sunshine that will warm even the stoniest of hearts.
Released 14/04/08 on Monkey Puzzle Records.
