From Chicago, Wingtips is the duo of Vincent Segretario and Hannah Avalon. Their dark anthems are in line with Ministry's early, "With Sympathy"-era synth-pop and the textural, yearning sounds of The Cure. Modern-day reference points include Drab Majesty, with whom Wingtips have shared the stage.
Wingtips embark on an extensive North American tour in August, including slots on Cold Waves VIII in Chicago, Absolution Festival in Tampa, and much more.
"Darkwave is experiencing an incredible renaissance right now, in part due to stylish and talented duos like Drab Majesty... Another rising act in the genre is Chicago's Wingtips, the devastating twosome of Vincent Segretario and Hannah Avalon."
"Immensely talented... A hybrid of post-punk and dark synth pop – as if The Cure and Depeche Mode circa 1983 were to come together in a studio in Berlin."
"Goth-pop duo Wingtips... captures the irresistible disintegration and woozy depths of the Cure's late-80s sound."
"Darkwave duo Wingtips are taking flight with a sound that recalls the beginnings of 1980s synth/electro-pop noir. Staking out a piece of The Cure’s swooningly romantic territory... with washes of diffusive synths, sparkling electro-notes, softly reverberating guitar chime, and echoed drum beats."
"Vincent Segretario and Hannah Avalon channel a lush, Cure-esque goth vibe and some slick post-punk tendencies to create impeccable, anthemic synth-pop to soothe your neurotic soul."
