Empire of the Sun is an Australian synth-pop duo who I have been pretty familiar with in the past. I enjoyed their 2013 album Ice on the Dune, and their debut album is fantastic as well. Not to mention they are also signed to Astralwerks, which released my favorite album of 2016 thus far, The Avalanches’ Wildflower. Although I personally do not like this album as much as the group’s older stuff, it still will definitely be enjoyable for people who have been long time fans, and I can see new listeners enjoying this as well.
