Marley Sola Covers Che Fu's 'Misty Frequencies' For NZ Music Month

Marley Sola Covers Che Fu's 'Misty Frequencies' For NZ Music Month

A.K. / Wednesday 6th May, 2020 3:30PM

Ōtautahi songwriter Marley Sola has set the bar high for New Zealand Music Month festivities, taking up the challenge of covering much-loved Aotearoa classic 'Misty Frequencies' from Che Fu's 2001 album Navigator. Sola has been working on his own solo career since his days in boy band Moorhouse, during which the four-piece rose to fame in X-Factor New Zealand and at some point performed at my high school. In the past month the 23-year-old multi instrumentalist has released breathtaking single 'Lift Your Head High' which he wrote, recorded, produced, mixed and mastered himself, and has been collaborating with a highly-talented bunch of artists on compilation Anthem. Doing 'Misty Frequencies' justice is no mean feat, but Sola makes the track glow on his acoustic rendition, taking total command of his voice and anyone listening. There will be much more where this came from as May rolls along, with further top-class covers on the way, and a chunky list of initiatives here honing in on this year's theme of "Support local. Stream local. Follow local. Buy local". Jump aboard the Marley Sola bandwagon, and line up Julia Deans' Marlon Williams cover next.

"This is a song that I grew up knowing quite well, as it was always playing somewhere and the melody has been forever in my head since. I love Che Fu, he’s a legend, and his voice is next level, so I thought I would give it a jam. Hope you enjoy! Happy New Zealand Music Month!"
