WINGTIPS was officially formed in 2014 by Vincent Segretario after informally having used the moniker for a number of previous experimental solo performances. In 2016, the band released their EP titled "GREYAREA". The album is an androgynous sound of transition; an interpolation of darkly shimmering layers of angular guitar and pulsating darkwave. Sharpening their anthemic rush with an increasing penchant for melody and an atmosphere equally informed by post-punk as sweeping electronica, "GREYAREA" contextualizes new romantic for the post-millenial end times. In August 2018, WINGTIPS' new single, “Relativity,” -- their first work in close to two years - was released. The track is a soaring anthem stepped in mid to late 80's nostalgia whose keyboard driven production is a cross between John Hughes soundtrack cuts from Thompson Twins or OMD, and guitar work reminiscent of The Cure’s "Disintegration". It’s the culmination of everything they have worked towards so far – a perfect summer dream anthem for all the outsiders, with hooks so compelling they are cinematic in scope. Recently, WINGTIPS have supported bands such as FRONT 242, ZOLA JESUS, THE TWILIGHT SAD, and many more. Their debut studio LP arrives in 2019.

PROVOKER are a band from the Bay Area, featuring members of San Jose and Oakland punk bands. The collective plays a cracked version of new wave/dark wave—steady beats, warbled horror soundtrack synths, reverb, gauze-like layers of guitar sound over undeniable melody. There is a narcotic effect to their brand of synth pop, fusing the mood and atmosphere of "Pornography"-era The Cure with a brighter MGMT aesthetic. Provoker is both hangover and remedy for 80’s oversaturation, skipping the pomp and grandiosity for something more organic.
