It’s been a minute since we received any new assets from Santigold’s99 ¢ents LP, but she’s back with a brand new visual.
Enlisting the talents of photographer Ari Marcopoulos and artist Kara Walker, Santi delivers an infectiously playful video for “Banshee.”
Besides panhandling on the streets of New York, Santigold finds herself in an all out shadow puppet battle with Kara Walker that’s oddly NSFW. In a recent interview with the New York Times, Santigold gushed about her shadow puppets.
“We hadn’t even planned on filming us both operating the puppets together,” Santigold said. “But at the end of the shoot, she was like, ‘Wanna try? It’s so fun!’ And of course I did, and it was! We were cracking up. It was my crash course in how to operate a shadow puppet.”
