Empire of the Sun

In 2008, two of Australia’s leading musician/producers Nick Littlemore (Pnau) and Luke Steele (The Sleepy Jackson) created a vision that seemed to come from an alternative reality - a post-apocalyptic psychedelic adventure known as Empire of the Sun. The resulting album ‘Walking on a Dream’ went on to sell a million-plus copies worldwide, spawning the singles 'We Are The People', 'Walking On A Dream', 'Standing on the Shore', 'Without You' and 'Half-Mast'. 8 ARIA awards (including Album of The Year), 2 Brit nominations (including Best International Album) and countless other accolades followed.

The Empire live show became the highlight of many summer festivals with its larger-than-life production featuring stunning visuals, dancing swordfish girls, cryo-bazookas and otherworldly special effects. Empire of the Sun became equally known for their innovative and evocative music videos - a series of journeys across the known and unknown universe which have chalked up more than 50 million YouTube views to date.

Almost 5 years on, the band have released their second album ‘Ice on the Dune’ and new single ‘Alive’ - continuing their exploration of crystalline, ultra-vivid cosmic pop - music for the heart, the head, the feet and the soul (head-dress optional).
