Luck/Time album preorders available now!

Available now for pre-order, Luck/Time is the culmination of four years of diligent songwriting and was largely made at Anna’s own studio The Attic (literally her home’s attic).

Thematically the album speaks to many different aspects faced by everyone over the course of our lives – love, loss, hope, despair, and even having a bit of Luck over a lot of Time.
Showcasing all the strengths and experiences acquired over her career, Luck/Time features pop sounds with tinges of indie, disco, and yacht rock thrown in. Going against the current trend of beats-heavy production, Anna stands deliberately with her guitar in hand. With strings peppered throughout, the core of the album is all about feelings – Anna expressing her own, and the listener feeling theirs.

The album is available for pre-order now digitally, along with a number of special edition physical packages.

Featuring a wildly infectious bassline anchoring another beautifully vulnerable vocal from Anna, this track continues to showcase the hallmarks of forthcoming album Luck/Time: carefully crafted songs and astute production from one of New Zealand’s most talented vocalists.

Layers of tactful guitar from Anna combine with a call-and-response chorus to create an instant earworm of a track. The track stems entirely from “a bassline and a desire to capture a certain feeling/groove in the music”, and shows another side to Anna Coddington: “slinky and relaxed, and a little bit creepy”.

The single arrives alongside a video again directed by long-time collaborators Aidee Walker and Humans. Starring Anna herself, along with a cameo from her son, and featuring a selection of her own stuff the video serves as a representation of Anna’s music making process – “I just go into the studio, grab whatever is up there, make noise with it, arrange it till it sounds good, and stack up those brightly coloured Pro Tools waveforms”. Colourful, melodramatic and instantly memorable, the video is the perfect accompaniment to ‘Apples’.
