Originally from Canberra but now living in Sydney, members Erica and Sally are winning fans all over with their high energy performances and engaging brand of hip hop. Drawing inspirations from the early millennial sounds of artists like Missy Elliot, Coda Conduct combine driving percussion with their clever lyricism, dexterous flow, and tongue in cheek humour to create one of the most interesting duos in the Australian music scene. They’ve supported fellow Australian hip hop stars Tkay Maidza, Thundamentals, Citizen Kay, as wel as hip hop heavyweight Pharoahe Monch. With one EP, and another on the way shortly, Coda Conduct are on their way up in the hip hop scene.

HITS
Recorded & Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at The Triffid on the 3rd of May, 2015.

The first band we’re going to hear from have a no-nonsense name that confidently describes the caliber of songs they write.
That band’s name is HITS. Having just celebrated their tenth anniversary as a band, they’ve lived more in that time than some bands would dare to imagine. With the twin guitar attack of Tamara Dawn and Stacey Coleman, vicious vocals from Dick Richards and solid backbone of Andy Buchanan and Gregor Mulvey, their live show effortlessly blow the minds of punters that come in contact with their extremely loud take on rock music. The latest record from HITS, 2014’s ‘Hikikomori’ was produced by legendary rock’n’roll figure Rob Younger, he of Radio Birdman and New Christs fame, and has been getting rave reviews from not only Australia, but Europe too. It was also longlisted for the 2014 Coopers Australian Music Prize. This particular set that we are about to listen to was captured at their 10th anniversary birthday show and is one of the finest documents of this bands live presence.
