The Night We Raise from Philadelphia duo Korine is a serious contender for best album of the year. There is not a single filler track on it.
Today Korine released a new music video for the song “Cruel” that finds members Morgy Ramone and Trey Frye bathed in shadows and performing in a dark, woodland setting. It’s a great fit for the song’s macabre lyrics about spirits and devils: “I’m alone in the woods with the spirit entwined. And I could be cruel.”
The Night We Raise is Korine’s second full-length album, following 2018’s New Arrangements. Last year, Korine released an excellent single called “Uncrossed” that was one of my favorite songs of the year.
