Empire of the Sun (Australia)

Empire of the Sun are know as an electronic music duo from Australia, but I would call them alternative with electronic elements. Empire of the Sun formed in 2007. Their debut album Walking on a Dream was released in 2008 and the band shot to international success. My favorite song off this album would have to be “We are the People”. The bands second album Ice on the Dune was released in 2013.  They have had a lot of success with their lead sing “Alive”, a great song which just makes you happy, if you haven’t heard it yet please take the time you won’t be sorry!


Sparkadia (Australia)

Sparkadia originally formed in 2004 in Sydney Australia. Lead singer Alexander Burnett made Sparkadia into a solo project in 2009. As a band Sparkadia released the album Postcards in 2008. As a solo project Alexander Burnett as released The Great Impression in 2011. I feel that the single “China” from 2011 is by far the best song Sparkadia has released.
