Erotic Secrets of Pompeii: Venus Ascending

Fairly new art punk act, Erotic Secrets of Pompeii, have proven themselves masterful at distilling all kinds of influences from very different sources, and translating them into fresh pieces of art which are aesthetically apt and totally of their own.

The band's latest single, Venus Ascending, pulls inspiration from Gregorian chants, occult readings, ancient Greek mythology, Haitian Vodou and the French Revolution, and the result is a seamless, moody punk rocker, elaborately artful, yet, entirely cohesive.

An ode to the power of femininity, Venus Ascending sees the Bristol band taking a more contemplative approach to their songwriting, and a more mesmeric drift which seems enacted as skillfully as the fiercer post punk tone of their earlier material.
