Sia – Kill and Run [Adelaide, AU]

Soul / Downtempo
Former acid jazz singer Sia Furler finally returns to her roots after her stint with David Guetta, Hiltop Hoods and the like. Yes she’s the amazing vocalist in Titanium. That song you hear just about everywhere remixed in all sorts of different ways and keeping a strong hold in Billboard’s Top 10. She sure did justice there but when you hear Kill and Run, you’ll realize that beats and synth are but ball and chain holding her compelling vocals back. What she really needed was an orchestra to back her up, which is exactly what she got this time. In the spirit of upcoming Great Gatsby here’s more of the album dropping one track at a time. It’s starting to become pretty apparent that the soundtrack is trying to maintain an extravagant orchestral quality throughout. Looks like the Australian director Baz Luhrmann who brought us Romeo + Juliet and Mounlin Rouge! is prepared to make us another film using music as its backbone.
