Western Australian sister duo Oceanique are back with another harmony filled folk song ‘Like I’m Living’, from their long awaited debut album due for release in 2023. ‘Like I’m Living’ showcases the twins’ undeniable enchanting songwriting and musicianship. With previous sold out shows in Albany and Fremantle on their last tour, Jess and Maddy are excited to be hitting the wide open roads of WA once again performing new and unreleased songs alongside their full band and in duo mode.
Out now, ‘Like I’m Living’ is an upbeat and uplifting story of change, perfectly capturing its daunting nature but holding on to that sense of wonder and awe. This anthem of growth and learning features the exquisite harmonies the Oceanique sisters have become known for, and catches both peaceful folk and ethereal pop sounds through its delicate production and rhythmic elements. The lyrics explore the concept of uncertainty, questioning what we need and look for in those moments, and build a narrative with layers of instrumentation and the twins’ calming moments of transcendental vocals.
“’Like I’m Living’ is a song about navigating life in your early 20s, when we wrote this one, we both were finishing our studies and it really felt like we were stepping into the real world,” the sisters say. “We felt life shifting, things around us changing and we were standing in the centre watching everything move.”
