JoBros drop 'Poms'
Boy band makes
quiet return

with new single
By GIBSON JOHNS
Daily Online Editor
I don't know about you, but
I had no idea the Jonas Broth-
ers were planning to release new
music together, and the lack of fan-
fare surrounding the band's new
single "Pom Poms" is both ironic
and unsettling.
Five years ago, the Jonas Broth-
ers were on top of the world: Their
album A Little BitLonger sold over
500,000 copies in its first week,
Joe Jonas was dating T-Swift,
their single "Burnin' Up" was ines-
capable, and Nick Jonas was the
talk of the town for his are-they-
aren't-they romance with Miley
Cyrus. 'JB' stood for 'Jonas Broth-
ers'back then, not 'Justin Bieber.'
But then, after their fourth.
album Lines, Vines and Trying
Times failed to make an impact,
the group took a hiatus and the
brothers went in their own direc-
tions. Joe had a failed attempt at a
solo career, Nick was on "Smash"
and wrote a song about Miley's
engagement to Liam Hemsworth
and Kevin starred in "Married
To Jonas," a reality show on E!
about his marriage to high-school
sweetheart Danielle Deleasa.
While the boys were gone,
Bieber and

I'm coolin' down for you, baby.
the void that the JoBros left in the
market, and preteen girls every-
where forgot what a Jonas even
was. Out were the purity ring-
wearing brothers from Jersey and
in was a troublemaking bunch
of tattooed British boys and an
Usher protege who's making
headlines for allegedly smoking
pot and sleeping with Rihanna.
Don't get me wrong, One Direc-
tion and Bieber are still making
music that is very much bubble-
gum, but you get the sense that
both acts are itching to move into
more mature territory.
Which brings me back to
"Pom Poms." In 2008, the release
of a new Jonas Brothers song
would've guaranteed its quick
ascension to the iTunes top spot,
yet "Pom Poms," 24 hours after its
release, sat at No. 8 on the charts.
Not bad, but there's no question
that the JoBros have lost part of
their original audience as ex-fans
endure their final years of high
school or enter college. The music

video, also released Tuesday, has
less than 300,000 hits on You-
Tube. Consideringthatthe Biebs's
video for "Beauty and a Beat" gar-
nered 10.6 million hits in one day
last year, those numbers are pret-
ty bleak.
And this is all for a song that
is arguably one of the better boy-
band songs released in a while.
With its callback chorus backed
by horns and a strong drumline,
"Pom Poms," for the most part,
shows a maturation in the JoBros'
sound, previously known for juve-
nile songs like "Year 3000." That
being said, it's clear that Nick,
Joe and Kevin haven't completely
abandoned what they're known
for (see: the female vocal section
intended to sound like cheerlead-
ers), but it's a definite step in the
right direction.
Now, we'll just have to see if
their fans will follow them there.
