Music Video: Empire of the Sun, We Are the People

Filed under: Download, Indie Pop, Music Video — Tags: , — Greg @ 10:46 pm


Song: We Are the People
Artist: Empire of the Sun
Album: Walking on a Dream
Label: EMI
Notes: 2nd single from LP
Analysis: Empire of the Sun is responsible for the catchiest song of 2008, and are continuing their buzz with a new video. So after becoming a bit more familiar with these guys, two things are apparant: they love dressing up in eccentric, bizarro costumes for their music videos, and they create some pretty good music. ‘We Are the People’, although less of a dance party track than ‘Walking on a Dream’ was, is just as pulsating and atmospheric. The inspiration for the visuals is the Mexican festival Día de los Muertos, and I wouldn’t be surprised if some heavy drugs were involved as well.

Bonus: In case you missed it in the 4th quarter of last year, after the jump is Empire of the Sun’s video for the awesome ‘Walking on a Dream’.
