Bristol based punk band, Erotic secrets of Pompeii walked into the graceful setting of the coach house studios to record their latest track, Not daunted by its past of great bands like Portishead and Massive attack, the band took inspiration from the energy that had been left behind deep in the walls and planted it deep into their own track, ‘They wouldn't let me write my book’.
Erotic secrets on Pompeii have been making a name for themselves in the Bristol live scene with their unhinged post punk and flamboyant rock, now they feel it’s right to release their first proper single since last year's debut LP ‘Witness in House of pox’ .
You get a sense the band have taken advantage of fully exploring every creative corner they can find, they draw and stretch their musical sound to resemble a theatre of artful expression. With grungy post punk slapping the lyrics all over your face as the band tells you their new story. But at the same time you catch flashes of dance beats at the foundation of the record, which builds the momentum of absorbing layers. Instead of being forceful and temper raved up emotion of other bands in the same genre bracket.
The lyrics allude to a showing of frustration of not being free to obtain the pleasures that obsess the words spilling out of the song. After the grandstand energy filled ending, this is a good beginning of the next chapter of Erotic Secrets of Pompeiis own book.
