Philadelphia dark-wave duo Korine hit the road soon, and they visit DC to perform with New York City’s Johnny Dynamite at Comet Ping Pong on Saturday, Feb. 18!
Korine is 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.
On Friday, Feb. 17, Korine releases a new album, Tear, featuring “Train to Harlem,” among other new songs.

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. 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.
In 2020, Korine released The Night We Raise, showcasing the band’s growth with songwriting and musicality more assured than ever.
Johnny Dynamite, aka John Morisi, releases dark synth music on Born Losers Records from Brooklyn. He released his debut solo album, Hearbroken, in 2020.
