New Zealand’s own shoegaze queen ‘Fazerdaze is back with ‘Bigger’ and a world tour

Fazerdaze follows up ‘Flood Into’ with the stunning new single ‘Bigger, ‘a candid dive into the femme psyche.

Amelia Murray, the creative force behind Fazerdaze, makes a welcomed return with “Bigger.”  Following hot on the heels of the well-received “Flood Into,”this latest track offers an unfiltered glimpse into the inner world of femme psyche, with a sound that’s as lively as it is grounded.

In Amelia’s own words, “I have often felt that ambition and being in the public eye can be a point of tension in my romantic relationships. I think this song is me trying to declare that I am allowed to want and have both; my career and romantic love. I don’t have to choose just one.” With “Bigger,” she crafts a musical narrative that captures her journey into womanhood and the pursuit of self-listening amidst life’s clamour.

Musically, Amelia takes an intriguing approach, experimenting with an anti-chorus structure. Here, the synths step forward while the vocal melody takes on a more conversational tone. It’s a touch that adds a genuine and relatable texture to the track.

As Fazerdaze gears up for upcoming shows in Australia and New Zealand, including a special appearance at SXSW Sydney, along with supporting sets for acts like NIKI and DMA’s, fans can expect an intimate yet easy-going live performance. And for those in Europe and the UK, Amelia’s tour schedule extends its reach, offering a chance to witness her magnetic stage presence.

Bigger” is an invitation to embark on a journey of self-discovery, a reminder to embrace desires and aspirations without compromise. It’s a sentiment that resonates on a personal level, affirming that we all have the capacity to be “Bigger.”
