video premiere: Fazerdaze – Bedroom Talks
We're psyched to premiere the charming new visuals from New Zealand's Amelia Murray aka Fazerdaze, for the wistful album-closing highlight from her excellent debut LP Morningside, which dropped earlier this year on Flying Nun. The self-directed "Bedroom Talks" video finds Amelia wandering and weaving, perhaps just a bit awkwardly and wide-eyed, through a crowded Times Square at night, as her friend Mark Perkins shoots on his iPhone. Amelia says of the vid:
"Mark (aka Merk) and I filmed this when we were visiting New York last year. We got to Times Square and we both marvelled (and laughed) at the crazy giant advertisements and bright lights above our heads. It was nice to shoot in a space where everybody else was also awkwardly standing in front of a camera as well. We filmed it on Mark's iPhone4 until the battery ran flat and then we caught the subway home.”
Fazerdaze will play her first North American shows this November in Toronto, NYC, Chicago, and LA. Get tickets for those dates here.
