It's been four long years since Santigold first hit the music scene, helping us to expand our acceptance of spandex pants worn in public and keeping our eardrums busy with fresh and incredibly catchy beats. Many years laterm I now own two fabulous pairs of spandex pants -- (Thanks, American Apparel!) -- and I still have every one of her songs on my iTunes and I'm in no rush to remove them.
Santi White, better known as Santigold -- formerly Santogold (are you confused yet?) -- is in no rush either. She's plotted and planned and spent the past few years putting together a new album that had exactly what she was after creatively - unwilling to just pump out another project just because it was what everyone else was doing. Say no to peer pressure everyone! Quality over quantity.
That being said, her new album entitled Master of My Make-Believe was released this past May, a very welcome and very anticipated follow up to her last album. You can find her latest music video entitled "The Keepers" HERE.
Uncompromising on quality, Santigold's style choices also reflect the high standards she has for her music. She leans toward the avant-garde and has a particular fondness for spandex, prints and innovative styles. It's not surprising to see her in something loud and curious, a fact, among many, that I absolutely love about her.
Santigold: Trends to try
Sunglasses with funky frames, crop tops, ankle-length boots, stripes, sequins and statement necklaces with flare.
Bust out those spandex pants too -- you'll thank me later.
