The second Antipodean track of the week, Fazerdaze (aka Amelia Murray) is a musician from Auckland in New Zealand. If you’re looking for high quality indie rock and alternative music, you won’t go far wrong at the moment if you look in that direction of the globe. There are a ton of great bands and singers coming out of Australia and New Zealand at the moment.
‘Come Apart’ is her latest single and follows an initial eponymous EP from 2014 and an album called Morningside from 2017. This is straight up, lo-fi, well crafted, introspective indie rock music. If you like that sort of thing, and I LOVE that sort of thing, then this is going to be right up your street.
Think, maybe, Dum Dum Girls or Alvvays, or The Shins. Or any number of great artists who mine this particular vein of music. Fazerdaze is destined to be as great as all of them. Definitely one to keep an eye on.
