With their debut album, Exposure Therapy, released in 2019 on Artoffact, Wingtips’ Vincent Segretario and Hannah Avalon stormed the scene with dark, infectious pop, drawing equally from slamming darkwave and lush synth-pop.
Revolver Magazine called the pair a “devastating twosome” and Chicago Reader offered these words: “Goth-pop duo Wingtips captures the irresistible disintegration and woozy depths of The Cure’s late-’80s sound.”
Sophomore album Cutting Room Floor maintains a base in ’80s sounds, but sees the band ascend to a new place of pure, timeless songcraft. With brighter melodies, deeper emotions, and a stripped-down approach that lets the songs shine, Wingtips have become something bigger than a retro act. With hooks so compelling they are cinematic in scope, and vocals that grab hold of the heart, Cutting Room Floor marks the genesis of a new style: “new romantic for post-millennial end times,” in the band’s own words.
