The best kept secret in music

Press


I wasnt really all that sure what to expect from the label that
brought us Thursday and My Chemical Romance, and its not that I dont like those bands, but I am sick of hearing 10000 bands that sound like them. So along comes Pompeii and shatters any stereotype that I had about Eyeball Records. This is one of the most solid 10 song albums I have ever heard. With as much of an influence from older U2 as with the newer bands like Angels and Airwaves this album flows wonderful. From great guitar work to a backbeat that keeps you listening not to mention the outstanding vocals that contain no screaming you are going to fall in love with this record. The balance of songs is what makes this so great. Pompeii writes outstanding indie rock to begin with but when you lay it out right (no two slower tempo songs in a row) you got a good thing going. This is a great band and a must have record for any collection of rock music. Its nice to hear a band thats different and better than most things coming out right now. (JK) - Allageszine.com

Bio

Imagine if you somehow found a way to release your heartfelt admissions and fears with grace and intelligence. Enter Austin quintet Pompeii, whose subtly haunting indie rock anthems are laden with smart, soaring instrumentals and just the right amount of discretion. Think if Coldplay wasn't pretentious. Think if Death Cab had skipped years of lo-fi bedroom recording and gone straight to honing their pop sensibilities. Pompeii has a gift for telling you what you already know. They just make it sound better.
