Last fortnight Perth gained a brand new, DEBUT track from indie folk sister duo Oceanique. Launching the track this Saturday at Clancy's Fish Pub Fremantle, this show is one we especially have been waiting for.
Hailing from the small south coast town Walpole WA, the pair intertwine their hometown coastal beauty with sibling intuitive harmonies and tight instrumentation creating this dynamic new track.
The single combines an emotive storytelling approach influenced by artists like Missy Higgins, along with powerful dual vocals and sibling harmonies reminiscent of The Waifs and Perth locals Dulce Blue. The track, mixed and recorded by Max Porotto, is blessed with features from talented Perth musicians such as Steve Hensby (acoustic guitar), Elliot Jebb (drums) and Tracey Devery (bass), enhancing the songs raw power and the duos beautiful folk sound.
Twins Maddy and Jess Larkman are originally from Walpole WA, where they take the beauty from the south coast as inspiration and incorporate it into their music. The pair are now based in the hustle and bustle of Perth, Western Australia and their songs incorporate breezy and beautiful story telling lyrics, inquisitive harmonies and a Celtic vibe.
After gigging regularly as a duo for 10 months around Perth they launched their full band on the 15th of August at the Rosemounts Four5nine Bar. The pair state that it “strengthens their sound, allowing them to tackle the bigger stages whilst still being able to play more intimate shows as a duo”.
With powerful harmonies, driving honest lyrics and a south coast story to tell, these two are fresh faces for the folk music scene.
