She released her debut self-titled EP in October 2014, recording it entirely in her bedroom studio in Auckland. With the help of multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Pearce, who mastered the release, she created a dream-pop sound, using electric guitars and effect pedals.[1]

Early years[edit]

Murray was born in 1993 in New Zealand's capital city, Wellington, to a European father and an Indonesian mother.[2] She attended Onslow College, later moving to the city of Auckland.
