“...we need to start adding Coddington to the clutch of classic Kiwi songwriters... Coddington’s talents are formidable”

Anna Coddington returns Nov 27 with her new album, Beams. Four years on from her previous record Luck/Time, this album sees Coddington dive into the personal to draw out the universal.
Leaning into her indie sensibilities, while maintaining a pop edge, Beams sees Coddington exploring her place in the world across 10 tracks as a mother, musician, Māori & human being. After spending long periods of her career shying away from these subjects, Beams sees Coddington tackling them head on & at full speed, with honest abandon.
Produced by APRA Silver Scroll-winning duo Steph Brown & Fen Ikner aka LIPS, Beams captures an artist & producer working cohesively, combining the indie/electronic-pop style of LIPS alongside Coddington’s penchant for storytelling. Each track explores a different aspect of Coddington’s personal life, and through that, exposes a plethora of universal, wonderful human emotions.
Since the release of her last album, Coddington has performed with the likes of Fly My Pretties, the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra, the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra, the Blackbird Ensemble & more. She has also co-written with, and produced for other artists, and composed the original music for the TV series ‘Head High’, all while maintaining a robust writing ethic.
