Coda Chroma is the alias of Melbourne based musician Kate Lucas, and is a vehicle for her preoccupation with writing songs. Coda Chroma’s songs are drawn from personal dreamscapes and real life encounters, delivering poetic honesty, with a nostalgia for the unknown. She works very closely with NZ born producer Damien Charles on this cinematic Indie Folk project, creating otherworldly arrangements and expansive musical landscapes.
In 2017 Coda Chroma invited us into her kaleidoscopic world with the release of her stunning debut self titled album. An instant underground classic full of well crafted but deceptively deep songs that shimmer with flecks of gold and grit. By turns woozy and confessional, dark and empathic, the musical terrain is vast.
After a fair stint of national and international shows, Coda Chroma has returned to release her second a!lbum Inside The Still Life, out 11 October 2019.
