PNAU – Chameleon *Empire of the Sun side project release

November 9th, 2016 by | Dance, Electro, Electropop, Music Video |

unnamed 600x399 PNAU   Chameleon *Empire of the Sun side project release“Chameleon” is the first single from acclaimed electronic act PNAU in over four years and it’s a fun electro pop track. Constantly inspired by the emotional weight of our world, “Chameleon” is spiritually anchored in the medicinal plant culture of the Peruvian Amazon and laced with all the energy we expect of the Australian outfit comprised of Nick Littlemore, Peter Mayes and newest member Sam Littlemore.

Not shy of output over the last 12 months, Nick Littlemore has dropped new Empire Of The Sun material (also produced by Mayes), a White Shadows EP (Nick and Sam Littlemore’s project with The Vines’ Craig Nicholls) as well as a forthcoming ambient collaboration with Celia Pavey, aka Vera Blue, all of which provide a true picture of PNAU’s expanding interest, influence and creative energy. Sam Littlemore (multi-ARIA Award-winning super producer) joins the inseparable duo of Nick and Peter to bring a wealth of new material into fruition. Having been involved as producer for their 2007 self-titled album, Sam is an integral part of PNAU, all genetics aside. The single “Chameleon” also welcomes the addition of Shakira Marshall, previously a dancer and back-up singer for Ms. Lauryn Hill on vocals bringing a new and electrifying layer to the band’s vision for 2016.

Watch the music video for PNAU’s “Chameleon” below.
