Ultraista Dabble in Light Painting in 'Our Song' – Premiere

Nigel Godrich's new band delivers mesmerizing clip

Nigel Godrich has been a principle mastermind of Radiohead's ever-evolving sonic palate, and he's a member of Atoms for Peace with Thom Yorke and Flea. Now Godrich brings his talents to Ultraista, an experimental electronic trio with singer Laura Bettinson and Atoms drummer Joey Waronker. The U.K. trio, who make their U.S. live debut tonight in Los Angeles, took a trippy, spastic turn on their video for "Our Song," from their recent self-titled debut LP. The clip is mesmerizing as the three band members use light painting techniques to spell out various songs lyrics, in addition to smiley faces, stars and sonic wavelengths. Elsewhere, Waronker chops away at his stand-up drum kit while Bettinson and Godrich grasp something resembling a handheld firecracker.
