New tour single by Philadelphia band Oh! Pears released June 2011. With his new band, Corey Duncan (ex-Pattern Is Movement) combines his love for classical composition (Ravel, Tchaikovsky) with modern indie-pop like Beirut, Grizzly Bear and The Dodos.
The single was produced by Jeff Zeigler (Kurt Vile, The War on Drugs).

Oh! Pears are touring Europe in June 2011 and - amongst others - playing with TV On The Radio. See tour dates here: www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=194232113955893



Under the olives, you and me
Forming a shape I’ve never seen
Oh hold your palms outstretched to mine
A hundred thoughts to pass the time
I know the way you’ve shined alone
Bright as the moon, a regal throne
Oh clasp your hands and wring them tight
That’s how you’ll make it through the night

Hours put us on
The valleys we walked along
The fear of where we might belong
Is all, all

Under the olives, you and me
Feet on the grass of blue and green
Sun will warm the ground below
And so will rise the earthly glow
And though the summer burns me out
It’s given me none to cry about
But churning hearts, oh pull and tug
And love the trenches you have dug

Hours put us on
The valleys we walked along
The fear of where we might belong
Is all, all
