Fazerdaze | Break! EP




Black vinyl

Fazerdaze, aka Auckland-based singer / producer / multi-instrumentalist Amelia Murray, is back with new music after a very intentional five year pause.

Fazerdaze returns with ‘Break!’, an air-punch purge in musical form, marking an important reintroduction to an essential artist of our times.

In a society where being strong and resilient is often held up like a badge of honour, it’s much, much harder to acknowledge when enough is enough - to accept when it’s time to let go. It’s a truth that Murray has spent years wrangling with, but one whose story thankfully comes with an empowering punchline of personal reclamation. Rewind back half a decade and,objectively, things for Fazerdaze were hitting their stride. Then residing in Auckland, an early determination to graft hard and “put herself in the right places” had led to working for and then signing with legendary New Zealand label Flying Nun. A debut LP - 2017’s ‘Morningside’ - followed, full of gauzy melodies and influenced by Frankie Cosmos, Japanese Breakfast, and the dream-pop landscape of the time.

Finishing up touring for the record at the end of 2018, Amelia speaks of a deep sense of burn out and, more than that, of feeling the “wheels starting to come off” in her general life.“No longer being stoic and strong was the best thing I ever did for myself. Giving up on the people and things that weren’t working in my life was this big release where I could finally put down this weight that I was carrying, and ever since then everything has been better in my life overall,” she continues with an audible sense of relief. “I can hear my intuition and write songs and be creative; I signed a record deal, I moved into my own place. It’s like the floodgates opened for good stuff coming into my life.”
