Australian duo Empire Of The Sun
are undoubtedly an odd, maybe the oddest choice composers for the soundtrack of a Farrelly Brothers comedy. Particularly this Farrelly Brothers comedy. Then again, if you're in the market for all things neat and tidy, you've probably already planned to skip Dumb and Dumber To
altogether. The film follows Harry and Lloyd 20 years later on a mission to track down Harry's recently discovered daughter: another frantic road trip that goes totally bananas.
While Emipre Of The Sun is well versed in performance theatricality, their sound is hardly bananas. It's easy listening electronica, a remarkably difficult line to walk so effectively. Harry and Lloyd, not so hot on the tightrope. In a way it's the perfect union, mellow theatricality can held guide and contain totally effin' bananas. In addition to "Wandering Star," the group also included their Ice on the Dune
track "Alive," as well as the new track "Tonight," which appears in the film.
