Pink Pompeii was a song about spilling pink paint on ants.
That song was written by cellist/vocalist Nan Kemberling when she was in the acoustic duo “Da Dum” with guitarist/vocalist Rob Gal.
During the time that Pink Pompeii was a song, Rob Gal was in the band, “The Holland Dutch,” with guitarist/vocalist Courtney King, and Nan went on an orchestral tour in China. When Nan came back, she and Rob wanted to change Da Dum from an acoustic duo to an electronic dance rock trio, as is often the case in similar situations. They asked Courtney to join them in this endeavor and she consented! It was at that time the three decided to use the name Pink Pompeii for their new electronica outfit. Boom! It was done.

Voices oscillate between carefree and dislocated, while the minimalistic music is like some weird hybrid of Euro cabaret, mechanical Tropicalia and an out-of-context kid's TV program.

Pink Pompeii will be releasing a new album in 2011 called De Rigeuer. The band includes members that were once in The Holland Dutch and an acoustic act called Da Dum. There are two major reasons I love Pink Pompeii; dance and cello. Listen to “Dark Cloud” to understand what I mean. The electronic dance groove is amplified by a cello gone mad! The band’s sound could easily be likened to Blondie, infused with Beethoven (both of which are cited as musical influences).
