premiere: Fazerdaze – Lucky Girl
Here's a perfect burst of swooning, happy-sad bedroom guitar-pop sunshine from New Zealand's Fazerdaze (aka Amelia Murray), taken from her beautiful debut LP Morningside, out this spring via the legendary Flying Nun Records. Amelia tells us about recording the bittersweet daydream "Lucky Girl" in the dark and solitary space in which she was living at the time:
"I wrote and recorded this track while I was living in a room that had no windows - except for a skylight which I eventually had to block out to stop my room from overheating. It was so dark in there and I slowly began to feel sad, like the walls were enclosing on me - that’s how I got the idea for the first lyric"
Morningside is out May 5th on Flying Nun.
