New Sia Video: “Soon We’ll Be Found”
The songstress uses sign language to communicate with viewers in this poignant track off her latest record.
They say that actions speak louder than words, and judging from the video for Zero 7 vocalist-gone-solo Sia’s “Soon We’ll Be Found,” she takes that maxim quite literally: Her action is to sign all the lyrics as she sings them. “I’ve always been obsessed with the beauty of sign language… the movement and expression appears as a dance — a beautiful, emotive dance,” Sia said of the video, which begins with the quirky Aussie’s paint-dipped hands singing along with the track before they meld into an effervescently neon forest of fingers and arms. At the clip’s conclusion, it seems as if it was all a dream — and with Sia’s swooning voice and sweeping orchestration, it sure feels like one.
