The newest episode of ambient pop goodness, Whatever became of Marie St. Clair?, was recorded in the idyllic surrounds of ARIA award winning producer, Magoo’s, Applewood studio. There is something about a renovated old church that just fits in with The Oyster Murders sound, that has nothing to do with organs, but maybe a little to do with ghosts and choirs.
Sounds from the album were inspired by a passion for unusual and analogue instruments, that arose from experimentation in the studio. This is sweet melancholy music with good pop-sensibilities.
The Oyster Murders consists of a few key members Grant Redgen who plays guitar and lead vocals and Shaun Edwards on drums. The band also enlists the talents of a rotating roster of musical collaborators. Collaborators currently in the live line-up are Daniel Wighton on guitar and keys, Wendy James providing harmonies and piano, and Adam Buchanan making some pretty intense and appealing sounds on whatever he gets his hands on.
