Pompeya release new single “Night” from upcoming EP
Today (4/23) Pompeya are releasing the title track off their upcoming Night EP. “Night” follows first EP single “Satellite” released early March this year. The forthcoming Night EP will be released June 17th, 2014 and follows the release of the band’s debut album Tropicalon Oct 29, 2013, as well as Tropical Remixed released on Jan 21, 2014. The Remixed LP included Fred Falke‘s standout remix of “90″ along with other notables including Jimmy Edgar, Psychemagik, and Felix da Housecat.
SPIN premiered the track earlier today, and had this to say:
“The Moscow-based four-piece is on the cusp of releasing the Night EP, a follow-up that, if its swayable title track is any indicator, will add a mellow freshness to Pompeya’s brand of upbeat, frisky disco.”

Walking Shapes, which consists of Nathaniel Hoho (vocals, guitar), Jesse Kotansky (guitar, violin and vocals), Jake Generall (keys, vocals), Dan Krysa (bass, vocals) and Christopher Heinz (drums) has received quite a bit of love and attention from several notable blogs across town including the likes of the Deli NYC, Earmilk and others for a sound that’s been compared to Radiohead and Alt J by some. But this much is true, their sound generally possesses an art rock, angular sheen with forceful guitars but underneath it there’s a very subtle sense of sleaze and danger just underneath the surface — and it does so in a seductive fashion. However, on their latest single “Winter Fell,” from the band’s recently album Taka Come On, has the band playing with a tightly held restraint, creating a sense of quiet delicacy meant to evoke the sensation of a lover whispering sweet nothings in your ear. (But it also manages to remind me a little bit of the Strokes.)
The official video for “Winter Fell” continues a previously held aesthetic — it’s shot on black and white 8mm film and is comprised of modern ballet dancers, seemingly dancing to the seductive and atmospheric croon of the song.
