Empire is an enigmatic five piece hailing from Perth, Western Australia. Having all met while undertaking studies at the prestigious Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, it's quickly apparent that this water tight quintet hardly lacks any talent. Having rapidly gained a reputation around the local scene as being one of the hottest live acts around it felt only natural for them to head into the studio to capture that energy. Blending influences spanning from Jazz to Dub Step, the band brings a fresh interpretation to Australian Hip Hop that is raw while maintaining a pop sensibility.
