This week we are getting excited about Ultraista in anticipation of their debut album which is set to be released at the beginning of November.
Ultraista are a trio, formed in London 2011 from a love of afrobeat, electronica, art and, according to them, tequila. Their first album will consist of 10 tracks of meticulously refined electro-pop full of beats, loops and synthesizer motifs with airy vocals floating somewhere in between.
The band consists of Nigel Godrich, Joey Waronker and the vocalist/artist Laura Bettinson. Fans of Radiohead and Beck may have come across Nigel Godrich before, he has produced Radiohead since 1994 and worked on many of Beck's albums.
