Bio

Accomplished Melbourne based singer-songwriter KÖDA is truly one-of-a-kind. Renowned for her powerhouse vocals, bubbly yet fierce personality and electric stage presence, KÖDA presents a whole new world of musical eclecticism and delivers it with a trademark rebel strut. Never one to shy away from stretching her musical horizons, she has recently been inducted as the newest member and lead female vocalist of the six-piece indie-rock outfit, Tempus Sun.

KÖDA's unique career thus far has seen her take on whatever musical genre, style or persona she fancies. Her current sound collates the best of her musical lineages, delivering unmatched powerful soul vocals that soar over an unquestionably rock heavy musical accompaniment. KÖDA continues to cross musical boundaries and demonstrate her incredible ability with experimental genre-bending melodies and challenging rhythmic diversity.

Confessional and sincere, KÖDA unapologetically invites us into her world with a lyrical beauty and vocal effortlessness that is both vulnerable and honest.

Although clearly having an in-depth understanding of a plethora of musical genres, KÖDA was raised with a love for pop, citing P!nk as her first major musical influence. “P!nk brought out an attitude in me from a young age and that is definitely coming through in my original tunes and live performances today”.

Throughout her teen years KÖDA was introduced to so many musical genres that would heavily influence her sound to date; Neo-soul with the likes of Erykah Badu and D’Angelo. Vocal and musical pioneers such as Michael Jackson, Prince and Chaka Khan, as well as indie pop rock groups Coldplay, Radiohead and Arctic Monkeys. And yet KÖDA always demonstrated a prolific appreciation for fellow Australian music geniuses such as Hiatus Kaiyote and Jaala.

KÖDA has since collaborated with many other Australian artists, including the likes of Tempus Sun, Zac Robertson, Sean Donehue, Rya Park, Emily Williams and Kaiit.

KÖDA’s sound is a breath of fresh air for the Melbourne music scene, it is raw, it is informed, and it is powerful. She is incomparable and new and she is not to be missed. KÖDA offers a chaotic genius that leaves everyone and anyone begging for more.

Like how you distill all your influences into this track. They're all jostling for position but somehow it all works really tightly. Keen.

What a way to demonstrate just how powerful your voice is! I love that this moves at a fast paced, jumps around a bit and balances at the right times. I’m a fan of those jazzy sounds that come through too.
