This little equation comes to you from down under. Take 2008 zeitgeist band Empire of the Sun and subtract weirdo alt-folk band Sleepy Jackson’s frontman Luke Steel (his vocals are instantly recognisable) and you are left with the more frenetic dance pop producers Nick Littlemore and Peter Mayes who make up PNAU. Add to this another antipodean, Phillipa Brown, more commonly known as Ladyhawke, and you have one of the most uplifting pop songs of the last decade. It’s a crime that it never got the attention it deserves, unless you were anywhere near the corner of Fashion Street and Brick Lane circa 2009, in which case you probably never want to hear it again.
