New shimmer from Pomegranates :: Everybody, Come Outside!


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).

  • Heather,

    Love love love the Pomegranates! I think the Cambridge, MA show is at the Middle East (upstairs).

    Keep up the fantastic blog; it’s a daily read for me!

  • One of the prettiest album covers I’ve ever seen I reckon.

  • Love the Pomegranates!

    But psst….

    The March 13th show at the Southgate House is in Newport, Kentucky not Covington, Indiana.

  • Yes! Terri is right. I take full responsibility for that mistake. Thanks for this post, Heather. Can’t wait for you to hear the album!!

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
