Listen to Empire of The Sun "Walking On A Dream"

Empire Of The Sun

Australian newcomers Empire Of The Sun are a combination of extremes. They're like Mozart meets Star Wars meets Scissor Sisters meets The Who. Conceived by Australian Luke Steele, I can best described Empire Of The Sun as a musical concept that combines bold, saturated visuals with an epic pop-rock sound. (Look at some of the amazing visuals here.)

The group recently released their single "Walking On A Dream" on iTunes that includes the original radio edit plus remixes by Van She, Kaskade, Danger Racer and Sam La More. The group's album hit U.S. download stores on April 21 on Astralwerks. The label writes:

"Empire Of The Sun brings together two unlikely collaborators from Australian pop. From Nick and Luke's collective unconscious arose a rare marriage of rock and electronica, immediacy and depth, futurism and tradition, hi-tech production and creative spontaneity, pop melody and the cinematic."

Listen to Empire Of The Sun's "Walking On A Dream" below. Also make sure to watch the video for the track. which was filmed in Shanghai.
