More borrowed music [updated]

It’s NZ Music Month, so … here’s a 1938 American hit “borrowed” by a popular local band for a recent album hit.

Chocolate fish to the first person to give the name of the local band. (Hint: their album was released in February.) I’ll let you know the answer at midday, if someone hasn’t already pinged it by then.

UPDATE: So that went well, didn't it.

The answer, for the two of you interested, is Auckland band Sola Rosa, who "borrowed" it without attribution for the song 'Humanised' on their new album Get it Together. Listen to it here.
