3. Standing On the Shore (Walking on a Dream, 2008)

“Absolutely love the transition at @3:04. The Indian chant goes amazing with the tune… My mind wanders away whenever I listen to this track. Love it. Absolutely love it. Wish they made more like these.”

2. We Are the People (Walking on a Dream, 2008)

“It is a bit cheesy, these guys look silly, and I thought they were from Europe because of the singers voice/accent. Because of that, overall presence and the fact that I don’t feel extremely comfortable by listening this I guess I shouldn’t like this single much. On the other hand, I can’t help myself enjoying it and therefore placing it pretty high on my guilty pleasures list”

1. Walking On a Dream (Walking on a Dream, 2008)

“Walking On A Dream is the debut album from the Australian electro band Empire Of The Sun. In a similar vein to The Pet Shop Boys, they combine electronic sounds and harmonies with that wonderful electro voice, this album is definitely a hit with me. I love the single and album title Walking On A Dream, which has an awesome video to it too. Nick and Luke’s stage persona is very theatrical and artistic just like the album cover. Well done lads. Looking forward to hearing more from you in the future.”
