POMPEYA is an up-and-coming indie rock band from Moscow, Russia. It is a project created by members of the Moscow-based band Silence Kit. The debut single Check was recorded in the beginning of 2007 and quickly became popular. Then the second single Traveller was released. POMPEYA released their full-length album Tropical in 2011.
Moscow sure sounds a lot like Brooklyn in Pompeyas beat-driven indie rock. Stiff-backed rhythms culled from the dance-pop pool, expansive New Wave vocals, and gleaming guitars point to a hipster truism: 80s music is great now that we can pick and choose.
