Whether providing guest spots for UK indie darlings such as Zero 7, Jamiroquai, and Massive Attack, or scoring the denouement for the HBO series Six Feet Under, Sia's vocals are sad and slinky, as if she has her arms around your neck and is pulling you close to whisper dismal secrets into your ear. Colour the Small One is no different. Even when she's singing about eggplants and candy bars on "Sweet Potato," her voice conveys a loose sense of fatalism and despondency. Only the triumphant orchestral strings of "Breathe Me" allow a brief respite.
