In the four years since Australian powerhouse Sia's last LP, her sound has become ubiquitous, even if her face hasn't. She's written hits for Beyoncé, Katy Perry and Rihanna – the vocal dips and midtempo melancholy of "Diamonds" are Sia's signatures – and this album will likely be just as ubiquitous. Her knack for heart-swelling choruses shines through on a set of tracks you might play while winning a marathon: There's triumph in her tiniest tics, like the echoing woo-ooh on the outro to "Big Girls Cry" or the sweetened trap toms of "Elastic Heart." You can't see what Sia looks like in the cover art, but she sounds like a superstar.
