"Chained To The Rhythm" is a bubbly pop tune with hints of Caribbean and reggae flavor. The lyrics were written by Sia, and reference utopian bliss and being comfortable in our personal bubble while trouble lurks outside.
The music video takes us to an amusement park with futuristic and retro sensibilities named Oblivia where people enjoy such activities as riding a roller coaster through a tunnel of emojis and being slingshot through the air. There's a dark undertone to the video though, as people are obsessed with taking selfies and concerned with fitting into society's norms. The lyric video has similar themes, showing a giant pair of hands taking care of a hamster named Mr. Parsons while he watches another hamster running in a wheel.
You can download the single on Amazon.
