Wingtips
WINGTIPS began years ago as teenaged Vinny Segretario and Kyle Crider's electronic, duo bedroom project. The two contributed and collaborated on tracks for their 2012 demo EP, AMBIGUITY. Later, Segretario took over WINGTIPS as his solo project, and since moving to Chicago from southern Illinois in 2013, it has become a full-fledged band complete with live instrumentation.

Drawing as much from Segretario's experiences growing up in the infamous sweat and booze soaked Carbondale, IL basement DIY punk scene as influences by 80's British post-punk and 90's club music, WINGTIPS manages to blend intimacy with purposefully mass appeal by combining cosmic synth atmospheres with a perpetually inventive dance pulse. You've got the classic elements of Chicago's historic Wax Trax! freaks-on-the-dancefloor sound blending with new-wave night club bangers and the modern punx-in-black goth revival.

Finally, contemporary dance music that's ok to like & that's DIY as fuck. Like The Cure's Lol Tolhurst said about WINGTIPS, "More pop is better sometimes!"...
