The mesmerising music video features Maddie Ziegler
The video, directed by the blonde-haired Australian singer and Daniel Askill, features her collaborator and muse Ziegler in a set up similar to “Chandelier”. Only this time, Ziegler is joined by throngs of other mysterious, face-pulling dancers. The video version of the track doesn’t feature Kendrick Lamar.
Past visual offerings from Sia include the series of megahits fronted by Ziegler in what’s fast become an iconic bobbed wig and leotard: “Chandelier”, “Elastic Heart”, “Big Girls Cry” and “Cheap Thrills”. “Alive” saw a tiny martial arts performer show off her best moves in an abandoned warehouse while wearing a monochrome wig.
