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 eponymous debut EP.
A succinct collection of intimate, beautifully produced dreampop written, produced and performed by Murray. 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. The EP quickly took flight, receiving critical acclaim from blogs and publications around the globe.
Since the EP release, Fazerdaze and her band have shifted to another level. Opening the 2015 New Zealand Silver Scroll Awards as well as touring with international artists Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Conan Mockasin. This year Fazerdaze toured the UK, became a genuine highlight at Australia’s BIGSOUND music conference and will be joining the 2016 Red Bull Music Academy in Montreal.
With a full length album set for release in early 2017, this is just the beginning for Amelia Murray and Fazerdaze.
