  • Steele told Q magazine regarding the album's vibe. "We were listening to ELO. Phillip Glass, lots of Japanese music. The effect we're after is a warm glow. Like lying in front of a log fire with a Labrador as a pillow."
  • The Ice On The Dune album continues the cosmic journey that the Emperor (Steele) and the Prophet (Littlemore) undertook.on their debut set, Walking On A Dream. Steele explained to The New Zealand Herald: "It's developed to the point where through the power of my crown the Emperor can develop dreams, but the King of Shadows steals my crown, corrupts my dreams and brings chaos to the world. And we set out on a journey across the world to reclaim the headpiece and restore peace."
