Disco Friday: Empire of the Sun

Australia's Empire of the Sun has been an internet sensation since last fall, but their debut CD, Walking On A Dream, is just seeing the light of day next Tuesday here in the States. I bought the disc on import a while back, and enjoy the band...not my favorite record of the year, but a solid effort that will please electronic music fans. The sound is a little Scissor Sisters, a little New Order, with a dash of Bronski Beat, and a sprinkling of Ultravox; the videos, as you can see above, channel the flamboyance of Elton John and Boy George to great effect. Worth watching.
