Album Review: Sia: “We Are Born”

28 Jun

“We Are Born” the new album by Australian singer/songwriter Sia is a soulful, bouncy pop treat! This new sound is a departure from the downtempo, sometimes brooding folk soul sound of Sia’s previous efforts. However different, this album still highlights the gem that is Ms. Furler’s voice.

Sia "We Are Born" (2010)

I discovered Sia back in 2008 when she released “Some People Have real Problems.” I instantly fell in love with the truthful lyrics and beautifully crafted songs, which transported me to a place of introspection. I must admit I was a little sceptical about the new direction of “We Are Born” but I am happy to report Sia does not to disappoint.

Here is the video for the bouncy first single “Clap Your Hands”

“Clap your Hands,” “ Be Good to Me,” “Bring the Night” and “Never Gonna Leave Me” instantly caught my attention along with the soulful, brooding “I’m in Here.”

Sia Furler’s “We Are Born” is a great record for an afternoon drive, fun afternoon with friends or a home alone dance session. Two thumbs and ears up! 😀 I got mah copy how about you?
