Disparate Youth (2012) - Santigold - All about the song

A composition about the search for self in youth.....

The song "Disparate Youth" (2012) by the singer Santigold

Disparate Youth is a composition by American singer, songwriter and producer Santigold (Santigold). The title Disparate Youth translates to "Unparalleled Youth". The track was released in early February 2012 as a single on Santigold's second studio album Master of My Make-Believe (2012). The song is performed in a half-step dub-reggae tempo, with shimmering solo synthesisers and soothing vocals.

The backstory...

Between her first works, her debut "Santogold" (2008) and her second studio album "Master of My Make-Believe" (2012), Santi White, aka Santigold, has not been sitting idle. She has had time to work with many artists ranging from Devo to Christina Aguilera. The singer has appeared on albums by 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 science fiction film Santo Gold's Blood Circus.

Although the collaboration was intense and fast-paced, real new Santigold material finally emerged in May 2011 in the form of the gorgeous track "Go!" featuring Karen O., but silence followed...

The singer then announced her forthcoming album, Master of My Make-Believe: a rather incongruous release, "Big Mouth", followed with a rumbling and heavy drum machine. "Big Mouth" sounds like a lost MIA song. However, that didn't stop it from becoming the soundtrack to the legendary FIFA 13.

Much easier (by ear) is "Disparate Youth", the album's first "proper" single. It has all the smooth keyboards mixed with frenetic guitar parts and Santigold's intriguing impassioned performance...

"Disparate Youth" video clip

In "Disparate Youth", the performer travels through the 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 fulfil it... Director Sam Fleischner co-directed and co-produced the 2012 music video in Jamaica. Nearly eight years later, the song is still actively rotating on streaming music playlists and the music video has racked up 28 million views on YouTube.

Santigold explores an island with young children with painted faces in search of a group of wise men living in the jungle thicket. Approaching the serene aura of the song, Santigold seems peaceful as she rides her motorbike along the shore, goes swimming with her children and walks impressively in at least 4 inch heels. The protagonist finds a tribe in the jungle and, after meeting shamans, embarks on a galactic journey through psychedelic visions.
