Fazerdaze is the project of Amelia Murray. She released her debut self-titled EP in October 2014, recording it entirely in her bedroom studio in Auckland. With the help of multi-instrumentalist, Jonathan Pearce, who mastered the release, she created a dream-pop sound, using electric guitars and effect pedals. On her debut LP, Morningside, it’s instantly clear that she is not beholden to the label’s signature style of Velvets-indebted guitar pop known as the “Dunedin sound.” Her potent indie pop of goes for a feeling of clarity instead. Murray draws from a relatively limited pallet; guitars, drums, the occasional keyboard line, but Morningside is notably more confident than anything on her debut EP from three years ago. She moves through styles gracefully, from straight-ahead fuzz guitar riffs to more subdued collages of sound.
