The brainchild of Amelia Murray, Fazerdazes self-titled EP is an intimate, tender and versatile debut that boasts impressive quality for a bedroom production.
Coming out of New Zealand, home of such excellent things as Flight of the Conchords, Lord of the Rings, Kiwi Birds and The Haka, Fazerdazes debut, self titled EP is bedroom pop at its bedroomiest. Combining drum machines, Bored Nothing-esque guitar work and double-tracked vocals, Murrays music is quaint, its personal, and its easy to lose yourself in.
Driven by a range of guitars and Murrays hazey, reverbed vocals, this EP is a piece of home broken up into small, digestible stories for the listener. From the summer-y Jennifer that offers shades of Lisa Mitchell, to the fuzzy, angst-filled Tired of Waiting, each song offers a differing side to Amelia Murrays songwriting abilities and influences. Combined with a very intimate, self-produced ambiance, these tracks dont hold back on tenderness. These songs are designed to feel close and familiar.
For a debut release, Fazerdazes self-titled EP showcases striking songwriting potential from this NZ artist, and will hopefully lead to future releases from Amelia Murray. Made in one bedroom, reviewed in another, Fazerdaze will prove to be a steadily maturing project as Murray grows as an artist and continues to develop her craft. - Happy blog
