Korine with Johnny Dynamite and The Blood Suckers
Saturday, December 4 - Doors 8pm - $12 adv./$15 dos.
Korine is a Philadelphia based electronic pop duo comprised of members Morgy Ramone and Trey Frye. The pair blends new wave nostalgia with a modern pop
sensibility, contrasting upbeat rhythms against sullen, emotionally evocative lyrics. Following a self-released EP "Corsage" in 2017, Korine debuted their first full-length
record "New Arrangements" in 2018 on Philadelphia label Born Losers Records which helped land the band multiple nationwide tours and two sold out vinyl pressings.
Following this release were two acclaimed singles "Uncrossed" and "To You" which were specially released on a limited 7" vinyl in the Fall of 2019, and marked a stylistic evolution for the band - a departure from the familiar 80s era influence to incorporate a more contemporary pop awareness. Korine's forthcoming September 2020 release "The Night We Raise" shows the band growing even further into their own, both the songwriting and musicality more assured than ever, and will be released jointly by Born Losers Records (US) and Data Airlines (FR).
Trey Frye and Morgy Ramone met in 2015 after moving to Philadelphia within the same month but from very different places. Ramone coming from Brooklyn after
residing there for 6 years and Frye from West Virginia where he was born. By chance the two were hired at a mutually loathed cafe in West Philly and there discovered
several shared artistic interests and began working on music and photography together. After a handful of demos and experiments "Korine" was formally introduced
in late 2017 with a self-released EP "Corsage" and photo zine the pair created while shooting film during the song writing process.
years of touring, Dynamite has taken time to develop his mostly self recorded craft through setting up small bedroom studios across the city (wherever he resides) as well as making a name for himself playing out with his band, establishing his love of rock n' roll.
