Taking their name from the Spanish literary movement ultraismo, this brand new London band is headed up by Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich. Producer/drummer Joey Waronker (Smashing Pumpkins, Elliott Smith, Beck) and singer Laura Bettinson add to the layers for a psychedelic electronic sound.

Their first song dropped this May – “Small Talk.”

Ultraista’s first release isn’t out yet, but we have one more song – “Static Light.”  It’s got a more Radiohead-like texture than the single. I hope the whole new record is this good.

You can get tickets to Ultraista’s live shows and pre-order their first full length here.
