Empire of the Sun - Two Vines

Time waits for no man, even one dressed like a space lord.

Time waits for no man, even one dressed like a space lord.

Label: Virgin EMI
Released: October 28th 2016
Rating: ★★★

When Empire of the Sun first arrived back in 2008, they seemed to be surfing the ripples of the zeitgeist as it bashed against the walls of the far future. Eight years on, and there’s little doubt they’re playing catch up.

Since ‘Walking on a Dream’ - at least on the surface - little seems to have changed for the duo, but the world around them has.

That’s not to say ‘Two Vines’ is a total dud - it’s not. There’s more than enough within to occasionally pierce the fog of cynicism, but time waits for no man, even one dressed like a space lord.

Give all this a try
