Yet another wonderfully creative video from the Australian electronic music duo, Empire of the Sun, for the lead single ‘Alive’ taken from their upcoming second album. ‘Ice on the Dune’ follows their award-winning 2008 debut album ‘Walking on a Dream’, which has been highly anticipated after the platinum success of singles ‘Walking on a Dream’ and ‘We Are the People’.
The video for ‘Alive’, directed by Charles Scott & Alex Theurer and produced by Kelvin Optical, Inc, sees the Aussie duo walk through dramatic desert scenes in a series of sci-fi Indiana Jones events. Supposedly taken place on another planet, the video also sees the song title being taken rather literally as the duo seemingly resurrects fallen individuals and they spring to life upon the futuristic powers of Empire of the Sun.
Intense, right? Although not too intense as the chorus screams celebratory dance moments induced in exquisite electro-pop. If you’d like to catch an electrifying Empire of the Sun show, the sci-fi duo is set to headline Wilderness Festival and several dates in the US and two dates at Vivid Festival at Sydney’s prestigious Opera House.
Watch it now.
