BUSBY MAROU ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM POSTCARDS FROM THE SHELL HOUSE OUT FEBRUARY 17
Busby Marou, aka Thomas Busby & Jeremy Marou, have announced the release of their third studio album Postcards From the Shell House, featuring the first single Getaway Car. The single is now available as an instant grat with pre-orders of the album.
Postcards From The Shell House was recorded over the last 18 months with Jon Hume at The Stables studios in Gisbourne, VIC as well as during sessions on Great Keppel Island and on a boat. Yes, a boat. Postcards From The Shell House returns the pair to their roots in a number of ways. The shell house in question, an old heritage-listed building on Great Keppel Island off the coast of their native Rockhampton, has great significance. Early in their career Tom and Jeremy would sit around a campfire there and sing songs, one or two of which ended up on record. Last year, with producer Jon Hume (Evermore) in tow, that same method in the same location produced a few songs for the new album.
