Friday Feature: Santigold


Santigold, formerly known as Santogold is an artist with an ability to mix different genres. making the music sound unexpected and ,well, genreless. She double-majored in Music and African-American studies and was a singer of a punk group, during which she was offered a solo contract by the same dude, who discovered The Killers. 

With her music Santigold tries to keep it traditional, yet futuristic. It's been well-received by critics, the public and acts such as Björk, Coldplay and Red Hot Chili Peppers, whose shows Santigold has been the opening act for. In addition, she's collaborated with artists like Kanye West, Lykke Li, and co-wrote one of my favorite Lily Allen songs- Littlest Things with Mark Ronson.

There's no doubt that Santigold's uniqueness and diverse talent can be heard on her two albums, of which the  latest was released this spring. Master of My Make-Believe, according to the artist herself, is about creating your own reality. Santigold's music videos do that quite well.
