“Without You” (Video)

    For the first time in any Empire of the Sun track that I’ve heard, the duo seem to be taking their cues from the mythic, melancholy child of Todd Rundgren and Alan Braxe. In the video for “Without You,” the song that Jay-Z samples on the Blueprint 3’s opening number, Empire of the Sun frontman Luke Steele still pushes the group’s over-the-top aesthetic. However, he does this alone, which Stereogum points out, would endorse the rumors that Nick Littlemore is no longer in the group.
