The Sleepy Jackson released two of my all time most-listened to albums. When I heard the band was on hiatus and Luke Steele had started a new project with fellow Aussie Nick Littlemore, I was initially a little bummed.
But then Empire of the Sun ended up being, well, Empire of the Sun!
While the music is more addictive electro-pop compared to The Sleepy Jackson’s more pop-rock meanderings, I love it.
The new track “Alive” is the ultimate life-affirming, joyous musical escapade.
