-Entry 1- Empire of the Sun -Entry 1-

And just when you thought pop was dead, here comes something truly original. Straight outta the down under comes a band from another megaverse known simply as Empire of the Sun. This duo blends the electronica groovyness of Daft Punk with the pop elements of your typical Asian karaoke bar, but trust me...Emperor Steel is no Willy Hung by any means so don't expect a performance on the level of "She Bangs." Their debut album "Walking on a Dream" walks the fine line between trippy/happy psychedelica/wtf?!?ness marvelously and if you download it from iTunes you get an exclusive track "Breakdown" that taps into the group's more funky Prince-esque-ness (I'll leave a link to the vid at the end). All in all, this band looks promising and I can't wait to see what's on the horizon for these guys.
