Shia LaBeouf Gets Cagey In Sia's New Music Video 'Elastic Heart' - VIDEO

Lebeouf

When did Shia LaBeouf get woofy? In Sia's latest music video "Elastic Heart", Shia and "Chandelier" sensation Maddie Ziegler face off in a cage match, of sorts, wearing naught but skivvies and a layer of grime. Accompanied by Sia's distinctive and quirky musical style, the video is weirdly compelling and touching, and utterly open to interpretation.

The erstwhile Transformers star appears to be taking control of his acting career and moving it into a new direction, and if Rob Cantor's "Shia LaBeouf" music video is any indication, he's maturing and taking his public perception in good humor.

As for Sia, she seems to be on quite the roll with engaging piece after engaging piece, the latest of which you can watch AFTER THE JUMP...

The Chew Toys: “Leather Sweater” (work unfriendly)

Chew toysThe Chew Toys (above and right) is a queercore married couple making trash punk “dumb sex songs like Kiss had on Rock & Roll Over, but about guys.”

On their debut album which came out last October, The Chew Toys have this to say:

“We really wanted to do an album that was most definitely queer, but still a rock album that would hold its own against anything else out there. That said, it was important for us to tackle important topics in a fun way - we look at the divisiveness of bear culture, the myths of queer identity, social media dysfunction - alongside songs about banging dudes from Boston, daddy chasers, paying for your own drinks, Quaaludes and more.

“We’ve played these extremely queer songs to primarily straight audiences for over two years now. Nobody seems to give a damn when we introduce the songs and clearly spell out that I’ve banged a lot of guys from Boston, or that this one is about edging a dude ‘til he can’t take it any more. It was a bit of an ‘oh shit’ moment when we started out but straight guys seem to like it when anyone sings about sex with anything as far as we’ve been able to tell.

“The song we did the video for - 'Leather Sweater' - is about being so hot for a guy you want to basically tear him apart. It’s always cool to see straight guys in the crowd singing along.”

Check out the lyrics and the song below for yourself:

I’m all over your shit / I got you wrapped up nice and tight / I’m all over your shit / I’m going heavy when you want it light

I’m your leather sweater / I’m ink and fur and salt and sweat uh huh

I’m all over your shit / I am the one that you think of first / I’m all over your shit / I’m gonna edge you til you fuckin’ burst

I’m all over your shit / Like the rainstorm that covers this town / I’m all over your shit / I’m the king that will wear your crown

Bent Cousin: “Perfect Summer”

We’ve covered English pop act Bent Cousin (above) before but the twins from Brighton, England never ever fail in their quest to make classic boy-girl indie pop.

A hallmark of the twin brother-sister act is breezy pop accompanied by perfect harmonies and generally clever and often biting lyrics referencing pop culture - see for example their brilliant track ”Spice Girls.”

Nothing if not prolific, their latest release is a collaboration with English solo act Guiville.  Complete with sha-la-las and a wall of sound wash, it’s perfect end of year pop.

Real Lies: “World Peace”

Real-Lies-World-Peace-Official-VideoReal Lies is a trio from London, England working hard to recreate the euphoric sound of the Manchester 90s sound.

Coming on like early 90s New Order via the “baggy” excess of The Stone Roses, if you close your eyes (and you’re old enough) “World Peace” will instantly transport you back to the glorious world of The Hacienda before obnoxious EDM took over.

Have a listen to "Real Lies" and last year's "Deeper."

For fans of: New Order, Delphic, Pet Shop Boys, The Beloved.
