Something Cold returns to the Marble Bar for another evening of isolation anthems and fog machine excess. This month we are celebrating Valentines Day by welcoming our friends from Chicago, WINGTIPS, to our foggy little soiree.
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.
SOFT TOUCH is Detroit's latest cold wave project, fronted by the mysterious Julian Yu. With a now much sought-after sold-out tape release on Detriti Records, we are very honored to have Julian grace the stage with Wingtips.
Something Cold DJs will play rare minimal electronic, industrial and wave records before, between and after performances.
