Last night I was watching a bit of Rage* and I caught a song that I really liked, and the film clip was cool too. If you’re a user of the American iTunes you may be familiar with it already, but I’m pretty sure I haven’t heard of this song or singer before, which seems a shame as she is Australian.
I really wanted to post the official clip for this song, as it is clever, and pretty. There are hand-puppet shadow stories and sign language and a creative use of vibrant colour. I couldn’t embed that clip, but this performance from David Letterman is no disappointment. A very smooth performance. I really enjoyed it. And pretty sign language is there too.
Oh! And if you’re keen on this singer, Sia has a catchy song called Buttons on Youtube, and it shows the quirky side to the Australian sense of humour. The way she looks in the chorus, reminds me so much of the witch in the famous Japanese film Rashomon. That chorus, is such a good look.
