Cincinnati art-poppers Pomegranates return this June with a brand new LP entitled Heaven. Co-produced by the band and Miguel Urbitztondo (Cracker, Sparklehorse, Daniel Johnston), the album will see the group continue to build upon their trademark reverb-heavy pop and pulsating guitar sound.
Case and point: our first taste of Heaven, the infectious and danceable “Pass Away”. The track shows Pomegranates upping the fidelity while still maintaining their punky roots. Vocalists Isaac Karns and Joey Cook’s harmony-laden falsettos come across as nothing short of Barry Gibb-esque as they croon “ohh I need your loving” over and over again as the song fades out. Get on your dancing shoes and check it out below, along with Pomegranates upcoming tour schedule, which includes a stop at South by Southwest.
Heaven is out on June 5th via Modern Outsider Records.
