    Simple Minds started out firmly in edgy post-punk mode in the late '70s, and by the time of their third album, 1980's Empire & Dance, they'd reached a crucial turning point. Though they'd begun the process on their preceding record, Real To Real Cacophony, here they perfected their mix of post-punk/New Wave rock, colourful synthesizers, and dance beats, effectively creating the template for what would soon become known as the New Romantic sound.

    I Travel was the first single from Empires & Dance and has Giorgio Moroder-influenced sequencers brush up against gritty guitar punctuation and funky bass lines as rock and disco fight it out for rhythmic dominance. EMPIRES AND DANCE officially marks the beginning of Simple Minds' most artistically fertile period. This rarely heard Simple Minds song was a ground-breaking 80's dance anthem and is a fine example of early techno and dark new wave.
