Empire of the Sun is a band, consisting of Nick Littlemore of Pnau and Luke Steele of Sleepy Jackson, from Australia that everyone keeps comparing and referring to as “the next MGMT”. While that has yet to be determined (particularly when it comes to the success of their debut, Walking On A Dream (out 4/21 via Astralwerks) compared to MGMT’s Oracular Spectacular, they certainly do sound quite a bit like MGMT, particularly compared to “Pieces of What”.
