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.
