Empire of the Sun is an Australian duo that’s been gracing us with infectious, disco-ball-worthy dance rock since its 2008 breakout album, Walking on a Dream. (And, yeah, eight years may have passed, but we know you still turn up the title track off that record.) To be fair, Walking on a Dream is nothing short of a synth-pop masterpiece, but it’s far from the only music the pair has made. For its most recent album, Two Vines, Luke Steele and Nick Littlemore enlisted Lindsey Buckingham (yes, that Lindsey Buckingham) and an impressive roster of former David Bowie and Prince collaborators to lift their compositions to glittering new heights. Driven by the concept of a modern city being reclaimed by nature, Two Vines is a fantastical, impossibly danceable odyssey bound to remind us all why we fell in love with Empire of the Sun in the first place. What’s more, the band’s live show features surrealist visuals and exquisite costuming. Minimalists, this one isn’t for you.
