Wild Part of the World
2014 debut full length album from Oh! Pears AKA Seattle-via-Philadelphia's Corey Duncan, formerly a member of Pattern Is Movement. An orchestral pop odyssey, WILD PART OF THE WORLD sounds out the culmination of Duncan's musical and personal discoveries from his years spent in his adopted home of Philadelphia. The album was recorded two weeks before he moved back to his birthplace of Seattle, Washington. The record is a walk through the menagerie of Duncan's mind, from the warm, head bobbing pop of 'It's Real' and 'Under the Olive Trees', to the heartfelt 1930s balladry of 'Natasha' and 'Dark and Muted Eyes', to the dark classical/modern R&B influenced 'Fill Your Lungs' and 'Helena'. Plus an acoustic/vocals adaptation of Tchaikovsky's 5th Symphony that owes more to Elliott Smith than to Tchaikovsky.
