Words: Saam Das
It's been a good three years since Santigold delivered her second album, 'Master Of My Make Believe', so it was a pleasant surprise when 'Radio' recently turned up somewhat out of the blue. The new song appears on the soundtrack to new romcom 'Paper Towns', adapted from John Green's ('The Fault In Our Stars') novel, joining the likes of Vampire Weekend and HAIM.
Even in such illustrious company, 'Radio' is a stand out - likewise, the sometimes-incomprehensible lyrics fail to halt the song's momentum. It's a juggernaut of an anthem, with Santigold at her best. "Be my number one fanatic, while I keep making classics", Santigold sings with a swagger - but she's not half wrong here.
