Editors’ Notes Sporting outlandish getups and wild makeup, Australia's Empire of the Sun are emissaries from a fantastic world where the air sparkles and shines and the sun's always setting or rising. Since breaking out in 2008, they've been livening up parties with a bewitching blend of soft rock, synth-pop, and sprightly EDM, all scaled up for maximum emotional impact. Synths fizz, acoustic guitars chime, and lilting falsetto choruses keep the warm fuzzies at the perfect temperature. In "Alive" they even tap a faux kids chorus, and with good reason: Their timeless pop is like candy to your inner child.
