HEAR THIS: Santigold Opens Her 'Big Mouth'

Big mouth, big mouth
My, my, my
You've said enough
Got a big mouth, big mouth
My, my, my
You've said enough

-"Big Mouth", Santigold

Everyone's fave underrated alt-popstress Santigold is officially back for Sophomore Seconds, people! Our first taste of her upcoming record, dubbed Master of My Make Believe, is via buzz single "Big Mouth", which you can snag for free at her website by signing up for her mailing list.

"Big Mouth" is everything we were expecting from Santi and then some, hitting up that noisy single trend that went mainstream last year. It's dubstep set to a tribal stomp, a la Beyonce's "Run the World (Girls)" or Nicola Roberts' "Beat of My Drum", but because it's Santigold, who's past body of work is much more in synch with this type of sound, it feels that much more authentic. While at first, it felt like a lot of noise, by the time the chorus comes 'round, you're unwittingly tapping your feet and by the time it comes 'round a second time, you're both hands in. Around the 2:30 mark, synth is added into the aggressive, tribal bombast for a whizbang of a finale conclusion. And then it's over in what feels like a blink. And you want to hit repeat. Again and again and again.

Remember, this is Santigold we're talking about. If the past proves anything, "Big Mouth" will only be the tip of the proverbial iceberg.
