Single Review: Chandelier by Sia

It is about time the woman behind some of today's best Top 40 music recorded a masterful track herself, and Sia's "Chandelier" is the pop genius she deserves. The element of surprise works to the single's advantage: the song's opening is anonymous, but as Sia digs deeper into the verse and (especially) the chorus, her strained voice adds texture and feeling to the proceedings. Not to mention, the chorus has such a sharp, melodic hook it launches the song into the stratosphere. "Chandelier" is already one of my favorite tracks this year.
