Can’t say I show South Carolina much love when it comes to music blogging. In truth, I just don’t come across many memorable artists repping the state. That is until I stumbled upon Koda, a writer/singer/producer doing big things out of the state’s capital, Columbia.
The 803 must be proud of Jordan Sudak — the man behind Koda’s mask — whose moody folktronica approach to “I Will Do As Spiders Do” represents a powerful, underrepresented take on pop music. I struggle with corny lyrics, but something about Koda is too real to not be recognized.
“I Will Do As Spiders Do” is cinematic, sweeping, darkly ethereal — a song that warrants multiple listens just to fully process the scope of Koda’s talents. It’s available for purchase on Bandcamp, should you be so inclined as to support an up-and-coming artist.
