Have You Heard? Santigold - Can’t Get Enough of Myself

Santigold - Can't Get Enough of Myself

This isn’t a brag track, reaching for the lofty heights of cocky-draws towers, but it’s unapologeticaly self-assured all the same.

Take an unbiased dip into Santigold’s back catalogue, and whatever gets pulled out of the lucky dip is likely to be left-field pop gold. From the unmistakable plucked synthetics of ‘Disparate Youth’ set against those claustrophobic snares, to the Karen O featuring ‘Go,’ Santigold is in possession of a discerning ear for unexplored avenues. Returning like an old friend earlier this year - minus any sort of pomp or fanfare - the Philly-born musician rocked up at Latitude wearing a fried breakfast and gingham tablecloth, no less. Now she’s announced her new record, ’99¢‘ just as casually, driving along in her car, over speaker-phone while chatting to Zane Lowe. “99¢ is a good price for me and my life!” she joked.

For all its low-key arrival, ‘Can’t Get Enough of Myself’ sounds like pressure bottled confidence. This isn’t a brag track, reaching for the lofty heights of cocky-draws towers, but it’s unapologeticaly self-assured all the same. “All I wanna do is what I do well, “ Santigold says matter-of-factly over tootling flutes, and squelching, bouncy castle basslines, “ain’t a gambler but honey I’d put money on myself.” Produced by Patrik Berger (the Robyn, Charli XCX and Lana del Rey collaborator, rather than the retired Czech footballer) and featuring B.C, Santigold has every right to be sure of herself.
