2019 has been a banner year for goth-pop duo WINGTIPS, who recently released their debut record and announced a deal with Toronto-based Artoffact Records. The duo comprises Chicago-goth mainstays Vincent Segretario and Hannah Avalon, producing unforgettable music that has already captured the attention of media and festival taste-makers alike. The new record, which finds its guitar work inherently in the vain of Disintegration-era Cure, while injecting electronic elements that would be at home on records by OMD, is a refreshing mix of synthpop, darkwave, and goth, that will appeal to fans of Cold Cave, The Twilight Sad, and Lycia.

Pixel Grip
Self described as "goth-disco," PIXEL GRIP, uses arpeggiated modular synths and propelling drums to create a sinister, yet playful sound that thrusts listeners to uncontrollably pound along to the rhythms. Imagine your heart looped through an overdrive pedal and every time it beats, you're carried deeper and deeper into the crystalline cavernous outreaches of your dreams and subconscious. Let's buckle up and take that ride to dreamtown, baby.

Yearning for a little piece of brightness in the midst of yet another bleak Chicago winter, STAR TROPICS convened to become the city’s next indie-pop dream machine back in 2010. With a knack for blending boy/girl vocals, jingle jangle guitar leads, and tidal waves of synth rhythms, Star Tropics are here to bring your sun-soaked fantasies to life.

The fine minds of FEELTRIP will be spinning wax all night.
