Empire Of The Sun have a new track out called ‘High And Low’

The first taste of upcoming third album ‘Two Vines’.
Australian synth-pop duo Empire Of The Sun sure know when to release their singles – bursting through the scorching heat with new number ‘High And Low’.

Full of the trademark grooves and highs that have made Empire Of The Sun such a beloved summertime force, the track is the first taken from their forthcoming third studio album ‘Two Vines’ – set for release on October 28th.

Speaking to Stereogum about the track, Lord (yes, Lord) Nick Littlemore of the duo said:

“It was about this girl I knew when I was a kid called Alice D who was kind of a wild child. She did all kinds of crazy things. There’s an Australian film called The Year My Voice Broke, I don’t know if you’re familiar with it, but there’s a girl in that that kind of lives a mysterious life. We wanted to write a song that captured the innocence and bravery of youth, and being a teenager, and having these kind of experiences where you throw caution to the wind and you try things for the first time.”

‘Two Vines’ is set to be something pretty special, with huge guest appearances confirmed from Fleetwood Mac’s Lyndsey Buckingham, Pince & The Revolution’s Wendy Melvin (yeah that Wendy) and members of David Bowie’s acclaimed ‘Blackstar’ band. So not holding back on anything really?
