Collection: KORINE

Korine is a Philadelphia based duo consisting of members Morgy Ramone and Trey Frye. The pair blends new wave nostalgia, early emo, and punk with a modern pop sensibility, contrasting upbeat rhythms against sullen, emotionally evocative lyrics. Forming in late 2017, the duo’s debut EP ‘Corsage,’ a moody, lo-fi set of self recorded synth driven tracks, gained the band quick traction and a series of tour dates through 2018. The tour garnered the attention of Philadelphia based label Born Losers Records, who went on to release the band’s debut album, ‘New Arrangements.’ Following a successful album release and consistent touring, Frye and Ramone then released an acclaimed two track 7” titled, ‘Uncrossed/To You,’ in the fall of 2019. 2020 saw the release of the band’s most matured set of songs to date, the sophomore album, ‘The Night We Raise,’ which heavily expanded the signature sound of the group while continuing to showcase the pair’s DIY mentality. Despite releasing during quarantine, “The Night We Raise” has sold thousands of vinyl copies and received praise from Bandcamp,, and Pop Matters.


The track features the band’s skill for twinkling synths that blur together like lights on the freeway at night; their sound is vibrant and based in dramatic melodies, but this single is more complicated in its demeanor than the bright title might suggest. - Flood Magazine

“An achingly heartfelt ode to lovesickness, set to a bright mix of synth lines. Some sparkle like disco lights, some are like fuzzy bass lines, others recall bouncy drum beats, but all work together to dramatically build up and then release a surge of emotion.” - Bandcamp  

“ Korine comprised of Trey Frye and Morgy Ramone, deliver music with soul and heart. Their music embraces all the beautiful light and darkness of the human experience." - POST-PUNK.COM
