Empire of the Sun has quickly become one of my new favorite bands. Having a great, positive vibe to so many of their songs. With clear influences from everything from EDM to Pink Floyd heard in their songs, this Australian duo’s popularity is deservedly on the rise.
Luke Steele and Nick Littlemore formed Empire of the Sun in 2008 and their debut album, Walking on a Dream, quickly shot them to international fame.
Their new album, Ice on the Dune, solidifies them as a band with the potential to be legendary. The more I listen to them, the more influence I gain musically for other bands and as a producer.
So, without further ado, allow me to present you with some of my favorite tracks from Empire of the Sun!
It’s clear how their use of costumes just adds to the aura and mysticism of Empire of the Sun. ”Alive” (above) is one of their recent singles. Great track! “DNA” (below) is one of my favorite songs.
