About five years ago, electro-pop surfaced on the music scene as a much needed challenge to mainstream radio. Consequently, acts like MGMT and Phoenix catapulted into the hipster mainstream, their tunes gracing fashion runways and the high-toned compilations of Maison Kitsuné. Hatching from the very same incubator are Empire of the Sun, an Australian duo from Sydney that present a silly charm of sci-fi costume and chic electronica. Their latest release “Alive”, revives the momentum the band enjoyed back in 2008 when they had released their debut, Walking On A Dream. The track surfaces just in time for the start of warmer temperatures, signaling summer, and a new juxtapositional album titled Ice On The Dune.
