Santigold has joined a creepy “perfect” 1950s-esque American family as their world and house is burning down around them in the brand new music video for “The Keepers” from Master of My Make-Believe. Just in time for the 4th of July!
Buffalo NY, May 16 – Santigold has been touring non-stop, with a few more dates in North America, she moves onto Europe and then back. In May we had the chance to catch a show. Santigold mixes electronia and new wave with hip hop and reggae, and before you dismiss that she is not your preferred style of music, know that she is. Santigold creates a style that is all her own, that can appeal to a wide range of musical tastes, and brings an incredible amount of energy to her live shows. Santigold sounds at home played at a ragging summer party and a goth/industrial night.
I love Santigold’s (aka Santogold) self titled debut release from 2009. It has a great indie dance mixed with hip hop sound. This spring she will be releasing a new album, Master of My Make Believe. The first single “Big Mouth”, with a music video, premiered today. The video is rather fun animated video with a retro look and some humor, it at least kept my attention the whole way through, though the styling is nothing special. I think her outfit in the video sums it up nicely… a pvc dress that doesn’t look top quality but not too standard, leopard print creepers that sorta match and don’t match at the same time, simple Egyptian-esq cat eyes, and a fresh hip haircut… it’s her own style and it’s not too serious, kinda what she was feeling that day, with an I-don’t-really-care-what-you think punk attitude. As far as the song goes, after a couple listens I don’t dislike it but I don’t love it straight away, but I am still very excited to hear the upcoming album.
