about

The inaugural Who Loves Who Competition has been a fantastic celebration of New Zealand song. Secondary school students from across the country have arranged, performed and recorded iconic tracks. Genres have been crossed, recording skills have been explored and future stars have been discovered.
Play It Strange see the craft of recording as the ‘notation’ of music in the modern world. Schools who embrace contemporary popular music – the music of the people – are focusing on the craft of recording songs – this competition will encourage not only arrangers, musicians and vocalists but offers opportunities to sound engineers, producers and the like where they learn all about the amazing science of recording studios.
From the birth of New Zealand recorded music (‘Blue Smoke’), through a cross-section of Kiwi pop history, to contemporary artists such as Zowie, these Who Love Who covers have demonstrated the diversity of our young talent. They have mellowed the metal, jazzed up the Enz, punked an anthem, and ‘orchestralised’ guitar pop. There are beautiful ballads unearthed from under dance floor hits and pub rock classics.
Special thanks to RIANZ for their support of The Who Loves Who Competition.
