Ultraísta have shared a new track from their first new album in eight years Sister – out March 13 via Partisan Records. “Anybody” weaves an orchestra through the band’s sophisticated, enthralling, electronic pop sound, and singer Laura Bettinson uses her face as a canvas in the accompanying self-directed music video. Watch below and feel free to share.
Ultraísta consists of Laura Bettinson (who also performs as FEMME / lau.ra), multi-instrumentalist/producer Nigel Godrich (Radiohead) and drummer/producer Joey Waronker (Beck, R.E.M., Atoms for Peace). Last month another ‘Sister’ highlight – “Tin King” – landed spotlights with NPR Music (Top Songs of January), Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Fader, Cool Hunting, Hypebeast, Stereogum + more.
Sister grew out of several years of sporadic improv sessions, with Godrich ultimately piecing everything together at his London studio space. The album is a cinematic sci-fi soundscape that’s both exhilarating and laser-focused. Behind Bettinson’s warm, inviting vocal delivery and anchored by Waronker’s sophisticated percussion work, ‘Sister’ easily stands tall among the impressive and extensive career resumes of each bandmember.
