Low and Behold High and Beyond Selected for 2012’s Finest releases
- Super Superb Magazine
“..a great album is just short of legendary status! It’s an accomplished, well executed slice of South Pacifican Downbeat Soul, well worth a look.”
- (Aug, 2012)
“Their most recent album, Low and Behold, High and Beyond, is a perfect example of their sheer awesomeness”
“WELL WORTH the purchase”
“Low and Behold, High and Beyond has shown that Sola Rosa can continue to make albums that stand out from the crowd, and has set a new standard for them”.
“The record oozes feel”
- NZ Musician (Oct/Nov 2012)
4/5 This band truly makes me feel proud to be a Kiwi. Moving away from the trademark reggae influences of previous albums, this latest offering combines a fresh and unique sound. This album can't be compared to anything else - influences, sure. But this one is all ours.
