Empire of the Sun

So...Info on these guys is sparse at best. The group consists of Luke Steele and Nick Littlemore. They are Australian so Captain feel free to chime in. The album is Walking on a Dream and was released in 2008.

We Are The People

Walking on a Dream

Standing on the Shore the dudes are a little strange. But really...aren't we all?


The Captain said...

yes, me especially! i heart these lads...they are in the UK top 20 this week and they have never played a gig! they remind me of MGMT but more betterer and a tad Presets with a lot of WIN thrown in. i love their art and characterisation and costuming. they are cool without being overly pretension. i want NME to be right "world domination awaits them". ps they're from perth which seems to breed great music of late. eskimo joe, sleepy jackson, a little band called INXS, most of get the picture. happy saturday to all my semi-sane friends. xx

Ginger, you have done it again. First it was Vampire Weekend, then Miniature Tiger, and now these fellows. You. Are my hero.

We Are the People is friggin beautiful. Simple and almost retro. Beautiful.

Well done m'lady. I am in you debt.

The Captain said...

"overly pretension" that which killed many a band! feel better that chops is "in you debt" though.... :-)
