Why do we like this?
Pomegranates' latest, One of Us (released on Afternoon Records), brings indie rock back to basics. They have the essence of a garage band while keeping up with the modern movement of tech-savvy instrumentals scattered throughout.

The Cincinnati quartet mixes surf rock with alternative rock to create a hazy, laid-back sound with an edge. The melodies are airy and soothing with a salute to 90s grunge and a touch of a mature version of so-called "emo."

One of Us goes in waves. The upbeat rock tunes are intertwined with slow, soothing melodies like "White Fawn" and "Create your own Reality." Spanning the musical spectrum, Pomegranates successfully pays homage all different styles -- they even have a token love song, "Between Two Dreams," but without the cheesiness.

"Skull Cakin'" is a downright jam. As the most upbeat song on the album, Pomegranates focuses more on vocals and simplistic beats to create a dance-worthy song.

From start to finish, One of Us continues to surprise and please. Without being too eccentric, Pomegranates easily create variety with minimal instruments. The album is entertaining and fun without going over the top in any way.
