Ultraista are gearing up for a special Record Store Day release - listen to a preview on ClashMusic.
Ultraista don't bill themselves as a band. Curiously, the information ClashMusic has been given presents them as a multimedia trio - a term which is perhaps appropriate.
Hinging on renowned producer Nigel Godrich, cohort Joey Waronker and vocalist Laura Bettinson, the trio delivered their debut album late last year. A bewitching work, Ultraista seemed to sit somewhere between the explicitly digital and the blissfully organic, the textures of the human voice and the exactness technology can offer.
With other large scale projects intruding, Ultraista took a little time off at the beginning of the year. New single 'Small Talk' is out next week, though, and it's release appears to have stirred the collective back into life.
Aiming to celebrate Record Store Day (April 20th) in some style, Ultraista have pressed up a limited edition 10 inch release. Containing two remixes, Matthew Herbert has stepped on board to re-work 'Static Light' while Zero 7 re-envisions 'Our Song'.
Ahead of the release, ClashMusic has managed to grab hold of an exclusive preview. Listen to a snippet of Zero 7's 'Our Song' remix below.
