Single Review | Empire Of The Sun | Alive

Rating: ★★★★★☆☆☆☆☆ 5/10

Yes their fashion choices may at times be questionable, but what isn’t in dispute is Empire Of The Sun’s ability to bring an element of brightness and optimism into your life. This is nicely showcased on Alive, the Australian band’s first offering from their second album Ice on the dune. This track picks up where previous album Walking on a dream ended, immediately throwing sunshine into your day. With rousing chants of ‘YOU MAKE ME FEEL SO ALIVE’ from singer Luke Steele it’s the kind of upbeat electronic music that you’ll find yourself humming along to all day, think The naked and famous or Passion pit with a touch of added camp. And with summer just round the corner and a certain robotic duo lined up to bring real electronic music crashing back into peoples lives, Empire Of The Sun couldn’t have timed the release of this song any better.

Empire Of The Sun – Alive

This single helps brush away the winter blues and is a great taste of what’s to come on Ice on the dune which is released on June 17th and available to pre-order now.
