Empire of the Sun consists of longtime collaborators Luke Steele of alternative rock act The Sleepy Jackson, and Nick Littlemore of electronic dance act Pnau. The group comes from “The Land Down Under,”  If it is a dreary day (which is typically is this time of year in Seattle) and you are feeling down, this outfit is the perfect cure for the rainy day blues. Their music is an uptempo blend of positive, pop/dance music accompanied by catchy hooks.

Empire Sun made an appearance this past spring at Sasquatch 2013 and closed out day two with a theatrical vegas style show. They came to town a couple weeks back and played a similar set in support of their most recent record, Ice on The Dune.

A lot of the music and back vocals are canned augmented with live musician’s. Samples and beats are triggered by various guitar and keyboard controllers on stage.  EOTS brings with them an army of sexy dancers dressed in futuristic stage regalia and some clever choreography, along with some fancy stage lighting and video backdrops.

Frontman and guitarist Steele appears on the stage dressed in like some sort of sun king (complimented with shiny crown and tribal makeup) and moves up, down and across the stage commanding his subjects to party and have a good time. An EOTS show is less about the music and more about the overall feel good, visual spectacle.  All in All, an Empire of the Sun show is fun, entertaining and a treat for all of the senses.

SMI Contributor Alex Crick was at the Paramount to capture some of the visual action.
