Hugely tipped star in the making Santogold is finally set to arrive on these shores when she releases the chart-devouring beast “L.E.S. Artistes” on May 5th.
Santogold is a genre smashing pop phenomenon, almost universally tipped by both style rags and music papers alike at the beginning of 2008. “L.E.S. Artistes” more than lives up to the hype, mixing analogue synths with simple guitar strumming to create something which is forward thinking without losing its pop appeal.
The single acts as a perfect taster for the forthcoming album “Santogold” – due out on May 12th. With UK dates already in the bag, it looks as if the charts may as well surrender right now.
Santogold will play the following dates:
May 16th – Wireless Weekender @ Roadhouse, Manchester
May 17th – Great Escape @ Digital, Brighton
May 18th – Great Escape @ Concorde 2, Brighton
May 24th – Dot To Dot @ Thekla, Bristol
May 25th – Dot To Dot @ Rescue Rooms, Nottingham
May 26th – Bar Academy, Birmingham
May 28th – Sound City Festival @ Alma De Cuba, Liverpool
May 30th – Sub Club, Glasgow
June 3rd – Scala, London
