First Impressions: Go Go Santigold Go!

Friday, April 15, 2011

Waking up this morning I didn't know that today I'd be listening to a brand new Santigold song with Yeah Yeah Yeah's fabulous front woman Karen O. AND production by Q-Tip. That's what makes life great...the unexpected.

I was sort of holding my breath for anything new coming my way from Santigold's camp, but I'm exhaling because it seems that the forever rumored follow-up to Santi's 2008 great debut is going to be coming to the surface this year. Produced by Santi herself, Q-Tip and Switch, "Go" has been worth the wait. Perfectly drenched in all the skittish and snarky punch that made me a fan of Santigold in the first place, "Go" is just demanding, and with Karen O. on board, you get some real femme fatale attitude on it. Love at first listen right when I got latched into the sneaky spy movie theme backing and thick bass.

Santigold debuted the track on Jay-Z's brand new blog, as Santi is a new family member on Jigga's label, and she had actually had a few things to say about her newest track. She described the song focusing on "the new American dream of fame and fortune" or as she told Entertainment Weekly"We’re ruining art, our planet, and our health, all due to our newfound obsession with instant gratification.” Deepness...

Whatever the context you get out of this, at least you can catch this unshakable groove.
