Good Potential


I think that this album is a strong foundation for a promising band. My personal favorite is Jerusalem Had A Bad Day. I enjoy music from today that can hold a statute for an old time feel; Sort of new wavish Indie maybe, I don't know. Songs that can jut take you back to a time of that special place that you used to go.... Too many bands experiment with too wild styles and don't remain true to just pure and simple instrumentals. Drums, Guitar, And a bass can take you a long way. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy all forms of Indie music, But sounds like Passion Pit become overbearing. I love weird music like Animal Collective'ish, But sometimes it is just so good to unwind to a simple band. And, This band does just that!

What the month of may sounds like


The Pomegranates have further made their sound more accessible than previous albums, with the pop-like vibes, while keeping their unique beats and treble-iscious bass lines. I feel like lead singer Joey really stepped outside of old boundaries (I thought vocals in the Corriander EP sounded restricted, held back), without being obnoxious, in the song Jerusalem Had A Bad Day, I think he really sounds a lot more mature in how he paces his vocals. I liked how the kick drum sounds, snare is a little twangy though. Love the spring reverb that guitarist Isaac has going! And I honestly feel that Isaac's reverb is what makes this CD sound like May. Cold winter is over, the snow is gone, and it's time we "come out of our foxholes".

Great music from my hometown...


The band produces a melodic and at times a power pop sound with great vocals and instruments. This, their latest release, is packed with a lot of great songs including some of my favorites Everybody Come Outside, Beachcomber, Corriander, Svaatzi Uutsi, Jerusalem Had A Bad Day, and Tesseract. This is put together very well with a great flow to it. This has to be one of the better bands to come from Cincinnati in most recent years.

Nice blending of soothingly soft sounds and exquisite voice. Give 'em a listen with headphones and allow them to take you away to a dreamy landscape of new adventure.

Worthy! Very exciting youngsters, hear them out


If you don't have Two Eyes and EIA, get those. ECO explores spacier themes with matching production- wider reverbs, more trackspace devoted away from the mic etc..... .......Strengths are typical Poms- jigsaw puzzle drumming leads shy guitars into adventurous structures as Cook's 10.0 tenor finds its best hooks hidden up and down a major scale. I really liked this album, def a band worth hearing now, for a first taste check out 'Southern Ocean' or the B-side 'Sleepover'

They Say All Music Guide

Pomegranates create an offbeat, arty brand of indie rock that relies heavily on atmosphere, presentation, and — in the case of this sophomore album, which follows the band’s debut by less than one year — a conceptual story arc involving a boy’s swim across the ocean and subsequent abduction by a time traveler. An odd premise, perhaps, but Everybody, Come Outside! revels in such a whimsical narrative, which the band supports with an equally quirky blend of pop-minded guitars and androgynous vocals. Pomegranates aren’t fantastic musicians; rather, they’re solid storytellers with a knack for delivery, adding little flourishes (including squawking seagulls, crashing waves, gang vocals, and a stomp-clap intro) whenever the plot calls for it. Guitarist Isaac Karns does the most impressive work here by adapting his guitar to a variety of contexts, from the 1950s sock-hop ambience of the title track to the echoing riffs of “Corriander.” He also assumes lead vocals from time to time, proving a more masculine contrast to frontman Joey Cook’s childlike voice, and his baritone range lends a sense of ’80s elegance to songs like “Jerusalem Had a Bad Day.” The album does have its flaws, particularly the indulgent “I Feel Like I’m a Million Years Old,” which spins the same dreamy chord progression for upwards of 11 minutes (nearly a quarter of the record’s entire length) with little dynamic change. Pomegranates may need some more time to ripen fully, but Everybody, Come Outside! will still be a treat to some palettes. – Andrew Leahey
