WRITER – Disparate Youth (Santigold Cover)

Were loving this filthy new take on “Disparate Youth” by ‘ghettotech’ garage rockers WRITER. The Brooklyn, NY based duo are pretty shameless in their interpretation of the rhythmic hit, exploring scuffed layers and distortion beyond recognition set to a nicely juxtaposed mid-tempo stroll and relaxed vocal. Sample the track below and besure to check out the band’s new LP titled Brotherface available October 30 via 3 Syllables.
