'Taking Flight' is the result of joyous Sunday afternoon jams interjected with long coffee breaks and vintage clothes-shopping.

The duo's eclectic style combines field recordings, synths, piano and saxophone creating their self-proclaimed style: Tropical Ambient Bangers

Meeting and blending talents in Meanjin / Brisbane, Marike and Madeleine have created audiences in NYC, Europe and Australia. 

Madeleine's recent album Ithaca was nominated as an album of the month on NPR’s 'All Songs Considered' and as a renowned (Dutch) jazz saxophonist, Marike has released 3 critically acclaimed albums.

Fusing together ambient, jazz and field recordings, their sound draws extensively from Marike & Madeleine’s diverse musical backgrounds.
