Pomegranate is a trio based in Oakland, California. Their music is best described as alluring shades of darkness broken up by slivers of bright sunny pop. Renowned for their intense live performances, Pomegranate moves easily between heavy-hitting rock and intimate pop.
Early on the band attracted attention outside the Bay Area when the influential college radio station KCRW in Los Angeles began playing the band's first 7" single. Soon thereafter the band performed live for KCRW's renowned Morning Becomes Eclectic show.
Pomegranate signed to the short-lived label Treat & Release Records. Shortly after releasing the band's debut album, "Don Ron," the label folded. Undaunted Pomegranate continued on, and released their second and third albums, "Larry Lane" and "Outside of This" on Drainpipe Records.
Pomegranate's latest release is the six-song EP "Ahead and Behind."
The band performs regularly throughout Northern California and tours both regionally and nationally.
