Empire of the Sun is an Australian electronic music duo which formed in 2007.
The duo is currently composed of Luke Steele of The Sleepy Jackson and Nick Littlemore of Pnau.
The pair’s name comes from the 1984 novel of the same name by J. G. Ballard.
The duo achieved chart success with their first single "Walking on a Dream" which peaked at number ten on the Australian ARIA Singles Chart and reached number sixty four on the UK Singles Chart.
Their debut album also titled Walking on a Dream, released in October 2008, to date has been certified platinum in Australia and has spawned the top 25 hit "We Are the eople".
Recently Empire of the Sun has gained mainstream media attention for gaining fourth position on the BBC’s annual Sound of Music poll 2009.
They are currently signed to EMI Australia and Virgin UK.(Wikipedia Empire of the Sun)

Walking on a Dream

The opening “Standing On The Shore” is misleading in that its relative bareness, although striking, leaves you unprepared for the rest. The title track “Walking On A Dream” creeps up on you with its retro 1980s feel before hooking you with a supremely addicting pop melody and chorus.

Subsequent tracks sound more dissimilar as the album progresses, but nonetheless maintain that Empire Of The Sun synth pop sound. Even the subdued (relatively speaking) “We Are The People” can’t stop the duo’s momentum as it shifts from a techno western “Country” to a celestial serenading “The World” to a hip-hop Justin Timberlake “SexyBack”-esque “Swordfish Hotkiss Night.”

By movie standards, Walking On A Dream feels short, having taken the briefest path possible to the other side of the universe. If you ask Steele, he’ll explain that it was beyond their control because “we really wanted to surrender to the higher calling, to the project as being the motivator.” That might sound creepy, but when you realize there’s a true method to their seeming madness you take comfort in knowing there’s repeat button.(Dorks & Losers Page)
