[PREMIERE] Pompeya – “Satellite”

I still remember sitting in my apartment in Warsaw, Poland, and getting an email from Russian band Pompeya about their music. That Cheenese EP quickly turned into one of my favorites of 2011, only to be eventually overshadowed by their full LP Tropical. There is something magical and effortless about their style and groove. Indie rock without too much rock. Beach music without the sunburn.

To my great pleasure, they are finally getting the love they deserve here in the states. Tropical got a proper US release last year. A full remix album followed in January. And now their new EP Night is coming soon and “Satellite” is the first taste. It’s soothing, danceable, and I can’t get enough of that flute.

Catch Pompeya at SXSW in Austin next week and then touring the rest of the states through April.

    There isn’t a flute in this song, what you’re hearing is a synthesizer. Dope track though!
