Indie Pop | New Zealand

About

New Zealand singer/producer/multi-instrumentalist Fazerdaze (real name: Amelia Murray) debut LP, 2017’s ‘Morningside,’
launched her onto the global stage with rave reviews from publications like Pitchfork and Mojo and tours to the other side of
the world from her previous home base of Auckland. But the wheels were coming off behind the scenes. A combination of
unhealthy personal relationships, feelings of unworthiness regarding her burgeoning success and general mental exhaustion
soon began to manifest in her musical output; for years, Amelia found she couldn’t finish a single song. That is, until she
relinquished resilience as a badge of honor and let herself crack open.

This year saw the addictively hooky new song “Flood Into” release as a single, making the previously vinyl-only track available
across all platforms for the first time. “Flood Into” appears on Fazerdaze’s first project in over five years - the powerful and
cathartic ‘Break!’ from 2022.

‘Break!’ was completed during a three-month long lockdown in NZ while Amelia was living in solitude for the first time, and
directly in the aftermath of a nine year long relationship. Taking stock at an emotional bottom, the EP crafts an empowering
portrait of surrender and personal reclamation. ‘Break!’ is a vital release for Amelia, who wrote it whilst on a journey of
rediscovery as both musician and human.
