Sia Furler has cemented herself as one of the most important figures in contemporary Australian music. Her passionate, soulful voice is matched with clever, wry and emotional lyrics that drive unique love ballads like "Sweet Potato" and gorgeous tales of infatuation such as "Natalie's Song". The international hit in "Breathe Me" is also of strong note, standing the test of time as a song of all-time greatness and instant recognition amongst ears of finer taste. The energy levels may vary between each track (from the percussive groove of "The Bully" to the all out finale of "Where I Belong"), but there isn't a single song here that will disinterest you as a listener - Colour The Small One is an audio experience of beauty, sweetness and grace; and easily one of Australia's most essential 21st century recordings. Bliss.
