Cincinnati band Pomegranates radiate with a prismatic color. Click over to their MySpace (do it!) and look at all those gorgeous colors — the same ones I hear in their music; the chimey yellow piano top-notes, the rich burgundy undertones, the strong current of aquamarine melody through the middle. It’s brilliant.
I previously wrote that Pomegranates create “delightfully energetic pop-harmony music… Like that weird-looking fruit, they burst open with some serious richness, all purpley red and sweet shimmery.” They also rocked it at Monolith – a huge, shiny, gorgeous live set.
Their sophomore album Everybody, Come Outside! is due April 14th on Lujo Records, and in addition to this new song below, you can snag a few other older mp3s on their label site. (Also — I loved their previous album cover, and this one maybe even more).
