What do you get when you pare the brilliance of Nigel Godrich, clever synthesized beats and the celestial vocals of Laura Bettinson, ultraísta. The “sixth” member of my all time favorite band Radiohead, has formed a new group with drummer Joey Waronker and Bettinson. Information is sparse online aside from their newly released single, smalltalk.
I’m loving this new track and the video is mesmerizing…literally, the movement and colors keep your eyes locked. The drum beats are beautifully wrapped with Bettinson’s vocals and the familiar synth effects that are becoming a staple in Indie Pop/Electronic music today. Their Facebook page hints for more to come so hopefully an EP or full length album is in their future.
Happy Listening and Happy Memorial Day Weekend!!! What does everyone have going for the long holiday?
