The electro-pop project of superstar producer Nigel Godrich
, multi-instrumentalist Joey Waronker, and vocalist Laura Bettinson, Ultraista take their name from the early-20th century Spanish literary movement ultraísmo.
Before connecting with Waronker and Godrich
, Bettinson performed and recorded as Dimbleby & Capper, and arose from the same London-based group of musicians that produced Micachu & the Shapes
and the Invisible
. The trio's debut song, "smalltalk," arrived in May 2012 to much online buzz. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi
