Ultraísta is an experimental rock band, formed in 2008. The band consists of Atoms for Peace members Nigel Godrich and Joey Waronker, alongside Laura Bettinson. The band's self-titled debut album was released on October 2, 2012.[1] The band's biography notes that it was "conceived from a love of afrobeat, electronica, art and inspired by tequila".[2]


Initially a collaboration between Nigel Godrich and Joey Waronker, Ultraísta became a three-piece with the addition of Laura Bettinson in 2010. The band's name is taken from the Spanish literary movement, ultraism.

The band released its first solo album in 2012, as well as a remix album the following album. In 2019, the band announced that it would be returning, with social media posts specifically dating November 22 as their return date.[3]
