The brainchild of Amelia Murray, Fazerdaze began as a string of bedroom recordings created late in the night, emerging fully-formed in 2014 as her debut eponymous EP. A succinct collection of intimate, beautifully produced dream-pop written, produced and performed by Murray herself. It’s a significant first outing for the young New Zealander with layers of softly crunching guitars swirling over consistently driving drum machines, and sparse electronica.
Since the EP release, Fazerdaze and her band have shifted to another level. Opening the 2015 New Zealand Silver Scroll Awards with her cover of Marlon Williams’ Dark Child as well as supporting and touring with international acts like Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Connan Mockasin and Matt Corby. With a full length album set for release in 2016 and a UK tour in June, this is just the beginning for Amelia Murray and Fazerdaze.
