Maddie Ziegler Stars In Labrinth, Sia & Diplo’s Fluffy “Thunderclouds” Video
LSD, a super-group comprised of Labrinth, Sia and Diplo, launched in May with a suitably trippy track called “Genius.” It was very good, but somehow the union was still less than the sum of its A-List parts. That also applied to the perfectly enjoyable followup, “Audio.” Things finally clicked — or kicked in — with “Thunderclouds.” The trio’s latest single showcases their respective talents equally and intricately. The vocals combine brilliantly over Diplo’s innovative, epic production. All in all, it sounds like a smash hit.
The video arrived today (August 30) and it’s a suitably whimsical affair that finds the producer driving a van through the heavens, while Labrinth tags along on top of a cloud. Maddie Ziegler returns as Sia’s personal avatar and she dances her heart out on top of the flying vehicle. Inclement weather threatens to halt their journey, but love conquers all in this feel-good adventure. After a slow start, I’m suddenly very excited to see and hear what LSD does next.
