WINGTIPS was officially formed in 2014 by Vincent Segretario after informally having using the moniker for a number of previous experimental solo performances. In 2015 they self-released Ultravision – a collection of demos recorded at home. The title track from Ultravision, was featured in the TBS television series, Search Party.
Their most recent release, Greyarea, is an androgynous sound of transition – an interpolation of darkly shimmering layers of angular guitar and pulsating EBM. The EP sharpens their anthemic rush with an increasing penchant for melody and an atmosphere equally informed by post-punk as sweeping electronica. The twin pantheons of synthpop and classic VG music are invoked as familiar textures singularly assured by Vincent's soaring voice.
With this release, Hannah Avalon moves from live member to creative collaborator, contributing to the ethereal come up of “Glass" and the ecstatic lullaby of closer, “Wading." Prior to WINGTIPS, Segretario and Avalon worked together in projects ranging from anarcho-punk bands to musical theater, and their language has remained fluent across that entire genre gamut.
Greyarea nods to the John Hughes OST aesthetic, but surpasses it by contextualizing new romantic for the post-millenial end times. Their hooks are so compelling they are cinematic in scope. WINGTIPS' debut studio full length will arrive soon / asap.
