Artist to Watch: Empire of the Sun


Empire of the Sun are from New South Wales, Australia. They sound like a hybrid of an ’80s David Bowie and MGMT. Clearly, they have the whole Labyrinth vibe going on in this ridiculous shot and even more ridiculous album cover. Their album, “Walking On A Dream” has already been released in Australia late last year and we’re looking at a yet to be determined release date here in the U.S. (Feb 23rd in the U.K.). The lead single, ‘Walking On A Dream’, is an easy pick for the dance floor with a delicious hook. Enjoy the hilarious and brilliant video for the lead single and other album standout “We Are The People” below for your enjoyment.
