“Beauty without grace is the hook without the bait,” Emerson once wrote. This scintillating band, at the wee age of four years old, has already achieved both. The third, decidedly un-trendy album by these four Cincinnati rockers is an exercise in fluidity and finds them swimming through a warm sea of contemplative heartache. Like Christopher Nolan, POMEGRANATES performs with a masterful ease, smoothly maneuvering from oversize spectacle to small-scale minimalism. It’ll reel you in with authority—and you’ll beg, “Please don’t let me go.”
