“Oceanique make the sort of music that heals souls, so they’re just what the world needs right now.” - Around the Sound
Winners of the 2022 Folk Alliance Australia ‘Youth Artist of the Year’, Oceanique are a twin sister duo from Western Australia. Their songs are filled with ethereal harmonies and peaceful folk energies, with stories of love, loss and the wonder of time.
Sisters Maddy and Jess have been crafting their unique folk music since 2019, releasing numerous singles and vastly touring their home state. Oceanique and their songs have enchanted many with their powerful harmonies, admirable musicianship and undeniable sibling bond.
They made their first national appearances in 2022 and 2023 performing at the Australian Folk Music Awards in Melbourne and Cygnet Folk Festival in Tasmania. The first of many national shows for the duo as they release their debut album in late March and launch its release at National Folk Festival in April 2023.
