Song "Disparate Youth" (2012) by singer Santigold
Disparate Youth is a song by American singer-songwriter and producer Santigold. The name "Disparate Youth" translates as "Incomparable youth." The track was released in early February 2012 as a single from Santigold's second studio album Master of My Make-Believe (2012). The song is played in a half-step dub-reggae tempo, with shimmery synth lead and soothing vocals.
Between her first works, debut "Santogold" (2008) and the second studio album "Master of My Make-Believe" (2012), Santi White, aka Santigold, did not sit idly by. She has worked with many artists from Devo to Christina Aguilera. The singer appeared on the albums of Spank Rock, NASA and Beastie Boys! She also changed her name during this time, from "Santogold" to "Santigold", due to the similarity of her previous nickname to the sci-fi movie Santo Gold's Blood Circus.
Although the collaboration was intense and fast, in May 2011 real new Santigold material finally appeared in the form of the great track "Go!" featuring Karen O., but then there was silence…
After that, the performer announced the upcoming album "Master of My Make-Believe" followed by a rather ridiculous release "Big Mouth" with rumbling and heavy drums. "Big Mouth" sounds like a lost MIA song. However, this did not stop her from becoming the soundtrack to the legendary FIFA 13.
Much easier (by ear) - "Disparate Youth" - the first "correct" single of the album. It mixes all smooth keyboards with frenetic guitar parts and Santigold's intriguing deadpan performance...
Music video for "Disparate Youth"
In "Disparate Youth", the performer travels through beautiful and fresh tropics and wanders through the jungle in search of some depth... The artist clearly saw the story she wanted to tell. She just needed someone to pull it off... Director Sam Fleischner co-directed and co-produced the 2012 music video in Jamaica. Nearly eight years later, the song is still spinning heavily on streaming music playlists, with the music video reaching 28 million views on YouTube.
Santigold explores the island with young children with painted faces in search of a group of sages living in the thickets of the jungle. Fitting into the song's serene aura, Santigold seems serene as she rides her motorcycle along the shore, goes sailing with the kids, and impressively walks in heels no less than 4 inches. The main character finds the tribe in the jungle and after meeting with the shamans goes on a galactic journey through psychedelic visions.
