Philadelphia-based duo Korine are sharing their new track “Mt. Airy,” and you can check it out right here at New Noise.
The duo, consisting of Morgy Ramone and Trey Frye, blend new-wave nostalgia, early emo, and punk with their own modern pop sensibilities mixing upbeat rhythms against emotionally evocative lyrics. Korine formed in late 2017, and their debut EP, Corsage, quickly helped them to gain traction and a consistent set of tour dates.
Korine released their most mature set of songs in 2020, with their sophomore album, The Night We Raise. The LP heavily expanded on their signature sound while continuing to push and showcase the band’s DIY ethos. The band returned to live music after a year of isolation in 2021, with a full U.S. tour supporting chillwave pioneers Small Black.
“Mt. Airy” draws from a place of bittersweet nostalgia, swirling in a fantasy of plentiful synths over a dreamy, pop-rock backdrop. The track is at once upbeat and sullen. The track was inspired by ’90’s pop rock and 00s indie punk, with hopes of capturing the optimistic feeling of those formative years.
The duo are expected to announce their upcoming full-length this fall.
