Emperors

Emperors started out in 2009 as a studio project with Adam Livingston and Greg Sanders having the common goal of writing catchy, loud pop music without any trace of cynicism or pretension. The songs combine rich melodies, anthemic vocals and abrasive guitars with the influences being varied, but firmly entrenched in 90’s indie rock and 80’s punk.
So what began as an inebriated, weekly ritual in a North Perth apartment developed over the next year until it became a poorly rehearsed but passionate rock n roll machine.
