Moscow based band POMPEYA is a new wave pop band, indelibly and unapologetically inspired by the 80’s. The band debuted in 2011 with ‘Tropical’ and has been garnering popularity for their brand of nostalgia and dance inducing songs ever since.
Youth, expectations, new horizons, love are some of the vibes that POMPEYA disseminates for listeners, and they do it with a personal precision that we’d all want from such a promise.
The shimmering glitter of ‘The Call’ is right up anyone’s alley, as it hits all the hallmarks of the 80’s coming-of-age sentiments with a delicate and supple vocal presentation that just works.
A trend-vibing sound that just doesn’t sound ‘trendy’ is fabulous to absorb.
And as the band travels the world for their tour, we wonder deeply: “We need some more from POMPEYA”.
You though it.
You shall have it.
See them next in Seattle, WA @ Dance Yourself Clean Party, August 10th.
