Santi White, a.k.a. Santigold, went from writing songs for others to doing her own thing, but in order to pursue her career, she had to relocate from Philadelphia to Manhattan’s trendy Lower East Side. “The song is about me moving back to New York, feeling really vulnerable, wanting to be an artist soaking up all stimulation creatively but at the same time staying introverted and in my own mind,” White said. “At the same time, it’s about being accosted by the New York scene and the scenesters and hipsters, who are really not artists and are just pretending to be.”
