Ultraista at The Independent [Photo Review]


Yesterday, Ultraista played only their 2nd US show ever at The Independent in San Francisco, Ca. A new project comprised of Nigel Godrich (of Radiohead fame), Joey Warnoker (drummer who’s preformed with Jack White, Beck, REM and Atoms For Peace) and front woman Laura Bettinson, Ultraista blends together pop and electronic sounds in a fresh and exciting way. Laura Bettinson stole the show with her soothing vocals and sexy dance motions, as her shadow played against the poetic visual backdrop. Ultraista played hits such as, “Smalltalk,” “Static Light” and “Bad Insect.” Playing a short set to an intimate crowed, Ultraista left fans salivating at the mouth for more and one can only hope that they come back sooner rather than later.
