Auckland-based but Raglan-raised NZ artist Anna Coddington’s fourth album Beams is her latest release on Loop Recordings. First single The Saint (with stains), gives a taste of the album's sound produced by indie-pop sensations Lips : melodic and tasteful instrumentation, succinct arrangements, and ruthless self-expression. Second single Beams, featuring the golden-voiced Louis Baker, further displays the magic musical combo that Lips and Coddington made in the studio. Whirring synths, nostalgic keys, punchy drums, and well-placed guitar and bass lines effortlessly support Coddington’s vocal through songs which dive deep into the personal to draw out the universal, taking inspiration from the likes of Julia Jacklin, Phoebe Bridgers & Clairo. A mother in a male-dominated industry, a Māori in a Pākeha world- she examines themes of identity, whakapapa, and self-acceptance through an urban Māori lense. With a broad musical palette and skill set, the last two years have seen Coddington write and produce for other artists, score and music supervise a TV drama, perform with large scale productions and orchestras, release music with electronic side project Clicks and more. These diverse projects have cleared the way for a sharper focus on the new album, her most cohesive yet.
