80s inspired trio Daniil Brod (Guitar & Voice), Nairi Simonian (Drums) and Denis Agafonov (Bass) are Pompeya. Hailing from frigid Moscow, Russia the indie band released their first album Tropical in 2011, ironic? Not necessarily. The album’s tracks exude delicate lo-fi beats with warm vocals that instantly captivate the listener. They describe their music as “melodramatic pop” and the band’s name doesn’t come from the ancient Roman city, rather it is named after a girl. The talented Russians have also released their Rare EP in 2008 and Cheenese in 2010.
