Sia “Elastic Heart”

Ah, nice! The year is already kicking off with a very strong piece. Here is the surprising new video for Sia‘s single “Elastic Heart” which has already gotten a lot of attention with it’s heavy content and suggestions of paedophilia. It’s again directed by Daniel Askill and features the star of Sia’s widely successful “Chandelier” video Maddie Ziegler and her incredible choreography. But the big surprise is the appearance of Shia LeBeouf alongside Maddie. They interact in a cage structure in moves that appear sometimes carefree and playful, and other times hurtful. LeBeouf hasn’t been a public favourite last year due to his volatile nature, so it’s nice to see him looking a bit vulnerable here. I really liked this video. The song talks about Sia’s difficult relationship with her father and that tension is beautifully represented here. The last 40 seconds in silence are especially moving.
