Seen and Heard: Empire of the Sun

Tripped-out psychedelic Aussie band Empire of the Sun makes songs that sound a bit like MGMT and elaborate videos that look like Tarsem Singh, the musical. Fronted by Luke Steele (formerly of The Sleepy Jackson), i'd say they're one to watch. I'm digging the overall result's 80's fantasy/sci-fi vibe and incredibly lush mad-cap theatricality, even if it veers a bit towards the preposterously cheesy.

The above video is a new one for their track "We are the People", hit the jump for their first video "Walking on a Dream".
