Have you heard the brilliance that is Cincinnati-based pop band Pomegranates? Since the release of the band’s debut album Everything Is Alive in April of 2008 through to the follow-up Everybody, Come Outside a year later, the group has been steadily building a loyal following for doing what any great band does: writing great songs, making great recordings and playing memorable shows. Seems easy enough, eh? Pomegranates sure do make it seem that way with songs that get stuck in your head and spark your imagination.

Now, Pomegranates lead singer Joey Cook presents his latest work – this time teaming up with friend Sophia Cunningham and coming out as a solo artist with his first full-length as Firs. The debut album Man In Space is an unabashedly avant-garde record teeming with raw energy. It follows-up two underground Firs EPs and will be released on the Pomegranates’ long-time label home, Lujo Records. Check out tracks from the Pomegranates latest album Everybody, Come Outside and the debut album by Firs below.
