POMPEYA – REAL X NIGHT (Indie/Electro – Russia)

Hailing from Moscow, indie-pop purveyors Pompeya have dazzled the music scene both at home and abroad with catchy synth melodies, bouncy bass lines and soulful vocals, inspired by 70s disco, 80s New Wave and 90s indie rock. Theirlast album Real has received the remix treatment and Mishu Records has decided to release all the reworks as an 11-track compilation, Real x Night (The Remixes).

The record features remixes and bonus tracks showcasing a selection of both heavyweights and up-and-comers including Amtrac, Mystery Skulls, Win & Woo, Jerome LOL, The Twelves and Moullinex.

POMPEYA – REAL (Alternative/Indie – Russia)


Following the success of their 2014 EP Night, Russian indie outfit Pompeya embarked on an extensive US tour, which included a stellar show at SXSW, and then headed straight back into the studio to record new material. After months of isolation and hard work, they are now presenting their third full-length album Real, out worldwide on May 5th.

Featuring their trademark blend of 70s disco, 80s New Wave and 90s indie rock, the band’s much-anticipated new record was recorded in Philadelphia, New York City, Savannah and Orlando — all places Pompeya had never been before. They enlisted producer Brian Mctear (of Local Natives and War on Drugs fame) to give their new songs a fresh sound and the result is effortless and “real”.

“For the new album, we wanted to create music with a larger message,” the band explained in a recent press release. “We were forced out of our comfort zones, forced to experiment more and discuss serious topics like growing up, loss, fatherhood and staying true to yourself without going crazy. These are the real stories of our lives, and the real sound we want to present.”

POMPEYA – FOURSOME (Indie/Pop/Rock – Russia)

Barely a year after their dazzling debut album Tropical, Moscow-based indie outfit Pompeya is already back with a gorgeous new record. Featuring seven brand new tracks, the album is appropriately titled Foursome and it is currently available as a free download through the band’s SoundCloud.

Pompeya - Pitsunda (Пицунда)     

Foursome was entirely recorded and produced over the course of one month in Los Angeles at Bedrock studios (previously patronized by the likes of Beck, Yeasayer and The Black Keys) and this change of scenery seems to have had a strong impact on Pompeya’s sound. During the recording process the band soaked up a lot of different influences and distilled them through their new compositions, which sound more mature and assured than ever.
