South Australian songstress Anya Anastasia’s music is a powerful blend of experimental folk and West-African inspired desert rock.
The originality of the songwriting and captivating melodies draw you in to the strange and dreamlike landscapes the music evokes.
Anya’s lush arrangements, intricate guitar work and intriguing vocals weave together to create beautifully crafted songs. Her lyrics ask questions about our society, conspiring to stir dissent and environmental action.
Amidst the grind of modern industrial life, her songs transcribe wonders of the natural world.
“A mix of Karen O, Fever Ray and Alison Mosshart” -Scenestr
Anya has performed her original music at Woodford Folk Festival (2019), in SoHo Playhouse New York, the Spiegeltent at Southbank Centre in London, and at many iconic live music venues and festivals around Australia.
Her debut EP ‘Dissenter’ was released in April 2022 and met with great success. Tracks from the EP have been played on Double J and spent months in the charts of ThreeD radio’s top20+1 (South Australia).
“’Dissenter’ is an intense, beautiful, intricate, lush and emotional ride of tones and flavours.” (Scenestr)

Opening the night is Coda Chroma.
Coda Chroma (aka Kate Lucas) is an award-winning songwriter from Ballarat, Victoria, and is described as “one of the most innovative and noteworthy musicians in Australia.” (Tone Deaf, 2021)
Coda Chroma creates music that sways between cinematic and baroque pop, with otherworldly harmonies, honest and existential lyrics, suspended in deeply nuanced production. Coda Chroma’s songs are drawn from personal dreamscapes and real life encounters, delivering poetic honesty, with a nostalgia for the unknown.
