Ultraísta – “Bad Insect”

10/08/2012

This newly formed electronic kraut-pop project began as result of the band members’, “mutual love of Afrobeat, electronic and dance music, visual art, and tequila.” The group consists of Radiohead’s producer Nigel Godrich, multi-instrumentalist Joey Waronker (REM, Elliot Smith, Jack White) and gorgeous lead singer Laura Bettinson (former student at Goldsmiths College in London).

Their 10-track self-titled debut album was released on October 2nd via Temporary Residence and the lead track, “Bad Insect,” is a worthy synth-infused pop song to present a brand new record, loaded with soothing rhythmic percussion. An ominous, bass-heavy intro is the perfect introduction to their sound. Have a listen to a stream of the track or elect to watch the psychedelic video. Full album track list below.

Ultraísta will visit San Francisco on October 22 for a live performance at the Independent.
