Two Vines

Album: Two Vines (2016)
  • This is the title track of Empire of the Sun's third album. Empire of the Sun's Nick Littlemore explained how the duo gravitated toward a particular image to help fuel their songwriting. "There was an image we talked about very early on with this record, before we wrote the title track, 'Two Vines,' and that was this image of a modern city overtaken by jungle, almost like mother nature taking back the planet," he said. "All the buildings will turn back to sand. All it will be is nature again. We wanted to make something that reflected the beauty of that, and the wisdom that plants can give us about living harmoniously on this beautiful planet."
