Drawing inspiration from 70s disco, 80s New Wave and 90s indie rock, Moscow's Pompeya creates unabashed pop music. The group's weaves vibrant harmonies, melodic synth lines, and punchy guitar riffs to create a sound compared favorably to that of Holy Ghost! and Cut Copy. Their debut Tropical quickly earned the band substantial popularity in their home country, which they supported with extensive touring throughout Eastern Europe. The US-label reissued their debut in November 2012, which was paired with a US touring debut. Tropical Remixes is the group's most recent release, which as the title implies, is a collection of remixes from the likes of Jimmy Edgar, Fred Falke, Felix da Housecat and Psychemagik, to name a few. 2014 will see the band's SXSW debut, full US tour, as well much anticipated new material. An EP is slated for March, with the single "Satelite" expected to come as early as February.

Brooklyn rockers Walking Shapes have come a long way since their formation in late 2012. The band released their debut LP, Mixtape Vol. 1, on July 30 (via No Shame), steeped deep in the Big Apple’s rock music scene having residencies at Pianos in NYC and Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn and showcased multiple performances at SXSW and CMJ garnering truckloads of critical support from across the US for their bass-heavy, atmospheric rock aesthetic and frenetic live shows.

The band churns out brash anthemic rockers, steeped in hefty doses of melancholy sentiment and often complex world-weary narratives. The band isn’t’ afraid to lighten up, and a few of their tracks could even be described as sunny, fuzz-filled jams. Even these lighter songs, though, have an undercurrent of restlessness and uncertainty to them, as if the music itself is completely unaware of its own destination.
