I was surprised not to see this album on more year end lists. Its blissed out bedroom pop that is in the same realm as the better-known Jay Som. For my money though, Fazerdaze has a better hit ratio.

Do artists still make songs that are intended to be heard from loud speakers or do they assume their songs will be heard through a cheap pair of earbuds? I don’t know if that thought ever crossed New Zealand’s Amelia Murray, but her bedroom pop from half a world away buzzes your brain in both scenarios. Songs like Misread and Lucky Girl would have been staples on 90’s alternative radio, but also sound great on your home made playlist.


Recorded and produced by Amelia Murray


Amelia Murray’s Fazerdaze project began as a string of late night bedroom experiments. Those recordings, written and produced by Murray herself, soon turned into her self-titled EP and captured the attention of all those with a hankering for dreamy, DIY champer-pop. With debut album Morningside out now via Flying Nun, the New Zealand born artist has captured such a specific moment in time, creating something intimate and altogether beautiful.
