    Default Empire of the Sun-Walking on a Dream

    Anyone else completely digging this song? The heathens, bless them, figured out the name for me and we are now on a hunt for the album. This song is amazing.

    I've heard this song a few times now, and yeah I do like it.

    I like the guy's voice. Is this band from Australia?

    I agree, the video is not the best. I like the song better without the visuals. lol

    ^^^^
    yearp, I put another tab up and surfed without the vid. The song is summery and light, I feel like I should be driving along a coast road in an open top car. This is a good thing. I may listen to it again now.

    The guys are surprisingly Australian and gay as the day is long. I wasn't sure about the video at first but it's grown on me. It is beyond gay which somehow makes me happy/sad because it reminds me of my GBF.

    My favourite part of the song is the chorus. It's a cool summery type song.

    heh, they played this on the radio the other day whilst I was at work, and I thought of GR.


    I'm liking it more each time I hear it.

    I uh, got hold of the album and it is really very good, full of very strong melodies and a suitably spacey feel, I've been listening to it alot recently.

    Empire of the Sun is a sideproject for Sleepy Jackson frontman Luke somethingorother and someone from another band.

    (yeah, I know. I'm totally hip to the hop and flush with knowledge of the Aussie music scene!)

    I like this song but not sure I'd listen to an entire album. Good chill out track.

    Just read an article about them and apparently not gay. How weird. My gaydar was pinging off the charts. Must get the faulty reading checked out.

    I think they camped it up for Empire of the Sun. Normally Luke Steel* is a lot more leather, grungy rocker type.

    * a month or so later, I finally remembered his name!
