Night Sky Empire (2010-2011)

Alternative Rock Band

Night Sky Empire was a 3-piece instrumental band formed in Johannesburg in May 2010. Their uniquely colourful, atmospheric and slow-burning rock sound spans several moods as their music meanders and shape-shifts with ease and joy... An enchanting melange of alternative/indie, progressive and freeform rock styles, including cinematic elements of post-rock.
