“Break!” by Fazerdaze
multi-instrumentalist Amelia Murray, the artist behind Fazerdaze, has announces her first project in over five years. The New Zealand singer/producer/ will release her Forthcoming EP Break!, on 14th October via section1. To celebrate the announcement of BreakI, Amelia has released the revitalising title track and its fisheye music video. The track follows recent single “Come Apart”
Fazerdaze released her debut LP, Morningside in 2017, and toured to the other side of the world from her small hometown of Christchurch. 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.
Amelia says of Break!, “I wish I had broken earlier because it was one of the truest things I ever did for myself. This EP is about finally allowing myself to give up. It’s about severing from the false parts of myself that were conditioned and not authentic to me. It’s everything I wasn’t allowing myself to feel over the past few years; angry, disappointed, cynical, exhausted and over it.”
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.
