Pompeya is a Moscow band that draws from ’70s disco, ’80s New Wave, and ’90s indie rock to create unabashed pop music. Their debut LP ‘Tropical’ and follow up EP ‘Foursome’ earned the band significant popularity in their home country of Russia, “energetically introducing Moscow’s youth to electronic indie culture” remarks Los Angeles radio station KCRW. The two releases were reissued in November 2013 by US label No Shame as one “supreme debut into the celestial world that is Pompeya,” according to MTV Hive. The US reissue was coupled a remix LP featuring Fred Falke, Jimmy Edgar, Psychemagik, and Felix da Housecat, to name a few.
Following an extensive US tour and SXSW debut , the group announced their new EP ‘Night’, released in June of 2014. Co-Produced by Brian Mctear, of Local Natives and War on Drugs fame, Spin Magazine remarked the release “add[s] a mellow freshness to Pompeya’s brand of upbeat, frisky disco.” The success of this creative marriage led to the two working together on a much-anticipated follow up LP, which will be released by No Shame in 2015.
