About Strange Parts
Upon meeting in Philadelphia in 2007, Attia Taylor and Corey Duncan vowed to make music together. It was not until years later when Duncan had moved home to Seattle and Taylor had taken a job in New York that the pair began working on material via email. Over three years of bicoastal collaboration Strange Parts was born. The project brings together the minimal pop sounds of Taylor’s solo work and the classical infused art pop of Duncan’s project Oh! Pears. This unlikely union combines to create a melodic art pop sound, rich with body moving grooves and toe tapping hooks, drawing inspiration from the likes of Serge Gainsbourg, Ebo Taylor, Billie Holiday, Broadcast , and writer Hermann Hesse.
Taylor and Duncan have returned to Philadelphia to record a forthcoming album produced by Jeff Zeigler (Kurt Vile, War on Drugs). They can be seen February 12th at The Art Dept. The event will feature intimate solo sets by Attia Taylor and Oh! Pears (Corey Duncan), and the two will perform select songs together for the first time as Strange Parts. There will also be a short film by Ailyn Robles and Mario Carrion, inspired by the band’s music. This event serves as a fundraiser to help with the cost of completing the record.
