Civil Society, Fuzzy and 3RRR present Santogold!
"Santi White shuffles styles as matter-of-factly as your iPod; Im a Lady nods to both girl groups (the Ronettes) and boy groups (TV on the Radio), and Lights Out could be a lost Pretenders single."
Rolling Stone & Civil Society is very proud to announce the first Australian tour of Phillys finest, Santogold catch her only Melbourne solo show at Billboard January 5.
She combines a voice rivalling M.I.A and Karen O with the sounds of New Wave, Ska, Dub, Grime, Baltimore Club and Hip-hop in a manner thats all of her own.
On her first album Santogold has already collaborated with underground superstars Diplo and Switch plus Spank Rock, M.I.A., Radio Clit, Dr Israel and Freq Nasty. Beyond all the hype and the internet buzz Santogold has been delivering astonishing live shows with her full 7-piece band.
