Silverchair frontman Daniel Johns and Empire Of The Sun’s Luke Steele have released the first single from their new collaborative project, DREAMS.
The pair made if known last month that they have been working together, which was announced in line with their inclusion on the VIVID LIVE lineup. Naturally, everyone has been eager with anticipation as to what this musical fusion would sound like, and their debut single ‘No One Defeats Us’ has proven to be quite polarising with their fanbases.
The music video is loud to say the least, with both dressed in their own, unique style as they strut through a run-down, urban landscape chanting the lyrics to the track. Whether you love it or hate it, it’s clear the pair are pushing a strong message behind this single. Speaking on the track, Dan says “No One Defeats Us says lyrically what our goal is, it’s a journey into our vision of the future.”
“Dan and I excel and struggle on similar levels” says Luke. “We have so much passion and we are so ambitious. That song came from a time when we were beginning the band and we needed something deep. I wanted to build a gang – like a gang of the future. We want the band to be for the common man, the underdog, the homeless, the person who shows love to his neighbour.”
