"From the sublime to the profane..."
- Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6
"Through the circus tent curtains of their raunchy English wasteland ranch, through their plagued masquerade; their dandyish, idiosyncratic convergence of Panic Movement and Pop Art, the odd and occult, their own film set... they have unlocked an uncompromising noise unlike much else."
- Louder Than War
🗡 APOCALYPTIC LOUNGE MUSIC 🗡
Erotic Secrets of Pompeii play wild, weird apocalyptic lounge music - a twisted amalgamation of angular art rock and transgressive post-punk, transmitted directly from the heart of the forbidden zone.
ESOP's music is populated by grotesque imagery and vivid symbolism, drawing from artists across different mediums, such as Lynch, Dali, Bacon, Blake, Cronenberg, Jodorowsky, Mapplethorpe.
The band released their debut EP, Trash Jugular, at the end of 2022 which was followed by a UK headline tour in early 2023, and a handful of appearances at major festivals including Boomtown and Bearded Theory.
They are due to support Electric Six on tour in the UK, in December 2023. Their debut album Mondo Maleficum is scheduled for release in January 2024.
ESOP's music has received support from BBC Radio 6, Radio X and BBC Introducing.
