Santigold has shared a new video for her recent single ‘Fall First’.
The track appears on new album ‘Spirituals’, which came out earlier this month (9th September) via the Little Jerk label.
The new video harks back to Santigold’s past before her solo career, which saw her front the Philadelphia-based punk band Stiffed.
In our review of ‘Spirituals’, we wrote: “Where ‘Spirituals’ - which both marks a return from a four-year break and Santi’s first release as an independent artist - works best, is as reminder and introduction. The cut-and-paste, mixtape ethos that shone through in the first place is still there.
“Not so much reigniting the spark that drew so many to her sound first time around, but a decent job of drawing a line from old to new and updating it.”
Watch the ‘Fall First’ video below.
“I will not continue to sacrifice myself for an industry that has become unsustainable for, and uninterested in the welfare of the artists it is built upon.”
Santigold - Spirituals
Not so much reigniting the spark that drew so many to her sound first time around, but a decent job of drawing a line from old to new and updating it.
A natural extension from what’s come before rather than a bold move forward.
The new dancehall mix precedes a September tour with Lauryn Hill.
