WHY YOU’LL LOVE THEM: They show bits and pieces of The Killers and Kings Of Leon, but what makes Empires rather unique is their melodies and their explosive frontman. Sean Van Vleet is a wandering 90s’ alt rock crooner who’s finding himself through ferocious vocals and brutally honest lyrics.
SOUNDS LIKE: A young Eddie Vedder lost in the translation of love and pain.
