"In Australia, Oceanique sound like home. To the rest of the world, they’ll sound like Australia and, as artists like Courtney Barnett have demonstrated so well, there’s a big appetite for Australia in overseas markets." – Around The Sound
The beaming light that is Oceanique, an Indie Folk band based in Perth Western Australia. This twin sister duo will have your heart with their heavenly sibling harmonies and distinctive vocals. Piano melodies tied with emotive lyrics and nostalgia reminiscent of their home town, Walpole WA.
Fronted by Twin sisters, Maddy and Jess, the pair will take you on a journey to the south west as their sound is enriched with hometown soil and the beauty of regional Western Australia. This ethereal sound is inspired by the landscape and musicians like Missy Higgins and The Waifs.
They launched their full band in August 2019, enhancing their glittery folk sound. Followed with their debut single release 'Papier Mache' in November 2019, with great praise, set them up to be an act to watch in 2020.
February 2020 saw Oceanique take the next step in their music career with a second single release 'Grandmothers Shelf' paired with a regional tour. It saw them share stages with WAM Award nominees Tanya Ransom and Tracey Barnett.
Oceanique released their strongest track yet, ‘Drift’, in October 2020 which is off their upcoming debut EP, ‘Flowers From Home’, set for release in February 2021. The nostalgic and uplifting new track, laced with angelic harmonies, perfectly frames the duos direction and sound for their EP.
Accompanied with their new Lap Steel player, Oceanique delivers warming folk beauty and sister harmonies that will hit your heart.
