WINGTIPS ( chicago )

WINGTIPS was officially formed in 2014 by Vincent Segretario after informally having used the moniker for a number of previous experimental solo performances. In 2015 they self-released ULTRAVISION – a collection of demos recorded at home. The album's title track 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, and prior to WINGTIPS has worked with Segretario 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.


P0ST3RB0Y was born when Ty Segall's 'Melted' was blowing up and the Buzz garage was shutting down. Jude listened to a few demos and threw him on a bill with HSY. That band lasted for just about a year until everyone was kicked out. What's left? A boy and his noise.

"Brilliantly chaotic electronic noise-pop from a dark future." ~ silentshout.ca

"...given how he tends to dive back towards his gear to hit buttons as if they're grenades with a snooze alarm, there's always a feeling that the songs could explode at any second." ~ Joe Strutt (Mechanical Forest Sound)

"It's punk.. it's fuzz-ish, but it's different from the punk you might be accustomed to. It's something you can't quite put your finger on, and maybe you don't want to." ~ Pablo Petrucci
