Sia's Chandelier – but with a string quartet


By Amy MacKenzie

Stringspace String Quartet have somehow made Sia's 2014 hit 'Chandelier' even more emotional.

The astonishing range and powerful emotion behind Australian singer Sia's voice is enough to tug at anyone's heartstrings. Combined with her 2014 hit Chandelier which explores some dark themes within the lyrics, including the demoralisation and rationalisation of alcoholism, you have a very moving piece of music. 

Stringspace String Quartet have covered the electropop song, with the compelling melody played on the violin adding a whole new level of emotion.
