Duo’s ethe­real sin­gle a fresh artis­tic di­rec­tion

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - News - TRIS­TAN WHEELER

Walpole duo Oceanique have re­leased their sec­ond sin­gle Grand­moth­ers Shelf, a folk pop track. If you are a fan of slow pop mu­sic or pi­ano-driven mu­sic, you will prob­a­bly en­joy this song. The buzz­word for this track is ethe­real and the vo­cals have been mod­i­fied to achieve this ef­fect, which makes the lyrics blend with the mu­sic at times, mak­ing it slightly harder to dis­tin­guish the lyrics. The singers main­tain their dis­tinc­tive Australian ac­cents through­out the track, har­mon­is­ing well to give the vo­cals depth and strength. One sur­pris­ing el­e­ment of the song­writ­ing is that the track has a muted crescendo, sub­vert­ing the ex­pec­ta­tion that the song will have an up-tempo crescendo or hook, show­ing im­pres­sive re­straint and artis­tic di­rec­tion from rel­a­tively new artists. The mu­sic video is avail­able to view on Youtube, at bit.ly/3f19DK6.
