‘Shake’ opens with a bouncy, light-footed groove. Santigold’s vocals are simultaneously vulnerable and soft while being powerful and urgent. Thrust to the forefront of the mix, the echoing vocals are connected to the past while holding tightly onto hope through hardship – much like Santigold clutching her tambourine in the music video. Running at only 1:43, this is an energetic and enjoyable track which demonstrates some of the spectacular potential to be released in her upcoming album, High Priestess.
