"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
There is some kind of warmth that surrounds Oceanique, a twin sister duo from Walpole WA. Their emotive lyrics will paint vivid pictures in your mind, of their world and their hometown. The pairs angelic harmonies will seep into your soul, making you feel warm and at home, because in Australia Oceanique sound like home and to the rest of the world they’ll sound like Australia.
Since 2019 sisters Maddy and Jess have released three singles accompanied by two regional tours connecting with people across WA whilst sharing stages with WAM award nominees Tracey Barnett and Tanya Ransom.
Their recent single ‘Drift’ reached number nine on the Triple J Unearthed roots charts and received regular radio play across WA as the track was received to have an undeniable warmth.
In March 2021 Oceanique released their debut EP ‘Flowers from Home’, mixed and mastered by James Newhouse (The Waifs). The five track EP is beaming with sibling harmonies and nostalgia and was labelled as a “love letter to their hometown” by RTR FM and received praise and airplay on Double J from Henry Wagons and Sarah Howells.
Along with the release, the pair embarked on a six-week regional tour beginning at Nannup Music Festival where they were selected as one of the emerging artists to watch. They wove their way through coastal towns and fell into the hearts of people across regional WA and Australia. The EP received great praise with reviews from Triple J and Perth’s Around the Sound and airplay on 4ZZZ, RTR FM, ABC Southwest, Denmark FM and more.
“The music on Flowers from Home seeps into your soul and gently bestows on the listener the gift of being part of the sisters’ world for a moment. It’s a surreal and intimate thing and it’s also simply beautiful.” - Andrea Thompson, Around the Sound
When you hear Oceanique, whether you listen to one of their songs, experience them live as a duo or trio (with lap steel), or with full band, you will recognise the warmth and the sibling harmonies they are becoming known for as they hit your heart.
