It is always refreshing to hear new alternative acts that occupy that elusive space between being individual and mainstream-friendly. Empire do just that. Despite the somewhat unimaginative name, the south-western quintet are really quite good - extremely good infact. ‘Where The World Begins', the band's debut mini-album, features what all too many releases sorely miss: character. Even after the first minute or so, this band will stick in your head.

In terms of sound, Empire are relatively difficult to pin down. It would broadly come under ‘rock' but there are some very distinct eccentricities that keep the band from such a mundane pigeon hole. Often these are minor experimentations in things like key, but sometimes come across in the use of unusual rhythms and harmonies. The feeling comes across that Empire are big fans of bands such as InMe or Fei Comodo, as there is the same feeling of accessibility despite a slightly abnormal sense of tonality. However, this album is very much grounded in a rock sensibility, with hard hitting choruses and catchy riffs dominating the battle plan of each song.
