Oh! Pears Headline at KFN Aug. 8

Published on The Deli Philadelphia – Sunday, August 8, 2010

South Philly’s Oh! Pears is compellingly massive. The brainchild of ex-Pattern Is Movement guitarist Corey Duncan, the experimental collective may vary in size often reaching 13 large, hefting a throng of strings, horns, percussion, vocals and a clutch of claps. And their self-proclaimed chamber pop is just as prolific as its framework – influenced by the likes of Grizzly Bear, Beirut, and Dirty Protectors, the indie opulence of Oh! Pears’ newest three-song EP, Fill Your Lungs, is eerily melodramatic, ambitiously symphonic and brilliantly unrestricted. Like a beautiful, distressing thundershower in the desert. So go get wet tonight at KFN with Oh! Pears and stage mates Jac,Shutters and DJ Cutlery. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $5, 21+ – Annamarya Scaccia
