POMPEYA – CHEENESE (Rock/Alt – Russia)


Pompeya is a young Moscow-based trio active since 2007. Daniil Brod, Denis Agafonov and Nairi Simonyan released their first single “Check” two years ago to very good reviews. It was followed by “Traveller” a few months later and they are now working on their debut album.

Their sound distinguishes them from most other Russian pop/rock band. Lush arrangements, New Wave-tinted vocals and catchy guitar riffs are all part of their special mix. In the band’s own words, “the 80’s and the music created back then are just great. We take this music and push it forward!”
