WINGTIPS was officially formed in 2014 by Vincent Segretario after informally having used the moniker for a number of previous experimental solo performances. In 2016, the band released their EP titled “GREYAREA”. The album is an androgynous sound of transition; an interpolation of darkly shimmering layers of angular guitar and pulsating darkwave. Sharpening their anthemic rush with an increasing penchant for melody and an atmosphere equally informed by post-punk as sweeping electronica, “GREYAREA” contextualizes new romantic for the post-millenial end times. With this release, formerly live member Hannah Avalon moves to creative collaborator, contributing to the ethereal come-up of “Glass”, and the ecstatic lullaby “Wading”.
In August 2018, WINGTIPS’ new single, “Relativity,” — their first work in close to two years – was released. Post-Punk.com calls the track “a soaring anthem stepped in mid to late 80s nostalgia whose keyboard driven production is a cross between John Hughes soundtrack cuts from Thompson Twins or OMD, and guitar work reminiscent of The Cure’s Disintegration.”
This year will see the debut full-length studio record from WINGTIPS, who have also recently supported bands such as Front 242, Drab Majesty, Zola Jesus, The Twilight Sad, and many more. FRONT 242, DRAB MAJESTY, ZOLA JESUS, and many more.
