Firsties and Faves: Pompeya
Favorite drunk foods include pizza, burgers, and more alcohol.
Locale doesn't always dictate what a band will sound like, as evidenced in Pompeya's new EP of tropical bangers, Night (out today via No Shame). The four-piece from Moscow delivers tunes that should probably be qualified as “junglewave” or “beachpunk.” It's the sonic equivalent to finding a scratched-up new wave CD buried in a Caribbean neach. Tracks like “Satelite” jingle and jangle like a cool, coconut ghost outfitted in a leisure suit. We had a chat with the boys about pizza, heartbreak, and Metallica.
