In 2008, two of Australia’s leading musician/producers LUKE STEELE (The Sleepy Jackson) and NICK LITTLEMORE (Pnau) created a vision that seemed to come from an alternative reality - a post-apocalyptic psychedelic adventure known as EMPIRE OF THE SUN. The resulting album ‘Walking On A Dream’ went on to sell a million-plus copies worldwide, spawning the singles ‘We Are The People’, ‘Walking On A Dream’, ‘Standing on the Shore’, ‘Without You’ and ‘Half-Mast’. In the process it helped spearhead the then-burgeoning EDM movement. 8 ARIA awards (including Album of The Year), 2 BRIT nominations (including Best International Album), and many more accolades followed.
