THIS SHOW IS STRICTLY 18+
Brainchild of songwriter Kate Lucas and producer Damien Charles. The musical terrain laid out here is wonderfully vast, from the darkly empathic opening track “Camera” to the muscular chromatic pop of “Fishing Line,” the smouldering soul confession that is “No One But You” all the way to the woozy, hypnotic finale “Indian Summer,” we are led through a kaleidoscopic world that shimmers with flecks of gold and grit.
Four years in the making, the tracks that made it on to the album were scooped from the deluge of music that Kate generated in her mid twenties. Sometimes candid, sometimes abstract, the songs are pictures of real and
alternate realities, vexed love, resilience, and nostalgia for the unknown. The single “Fishing Line” sees Kate engage in a self-reflective pep talk in the aftermath of a string of tough encounters with love. After a release lead up that included the single “Car Tapes” being added to the Double J playlist, a slot in the Music Victoria Crawl #1 tour, supports with Husky, Ainslie Wills, and Jordie Lane, Coda Chroma are set to celebrate the release of their debut album with a live show this April.
