Don’t say this will be the end, if you know pain 
We will be there holding hands, I just can’t explain

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, Post-punk.com, and Pop Matters. Following a year of isolation, Korine returned to touring in 2021 with a full US Tour supporting chillwave pioneers Small Black and continued into 2022 with several festival appearances including their international debut at wave gotik treffen in Leipzig. Korine have announced their new album "Tear" releasing February 17th 2023.
