Spin Includes Pomegranates in Top 30 Artists Playing CMJ, Tour U.S.

Indie band Pomegranates are creating a buzz with their indie alternative rock sound. The band is making a stop at this year’s CMJ Showcase and have been picked as “Best Artist from CMJ” by Spin Magazine.

The Cincinnati, Ohio based band is set to release their third full-length studio album – One Of Us – on October 26th on Afternoon Records.  The new album is their first for Afternoon Records and was co-produced by the band and TJ Lipple of Aloha (MGMT, Headlights, Minus Story), who also mixed and mastered the record.

Formed in 2006, the young indie band quickly distinguished itself with its mesmerizing art-pop compositions, eliciting acclaim from My Old Kentucky Blog (“Sweet, sweet sounds are pop honey to my ears”), massive support from and invitations to tour from the French Kicks, Islands and Jimmy Eat World.

Check out their single, “5O’s” below:
