I don’t post enough indie-electronic material on here, and hopefully this is the start of a new trend for me. NYC’s Wingtip is a great artist to start with; he’s not huge yet, and his music is extremely chill. The oldest song he posted is 10 months old, so hopefully he’s new to you too. After skimming through his feed, I can confidently say that this man makes nothing but beautiful, head-nod inducing jams.
Although Wingtip dabbles in remixes, this is 100% original, and it reminds me of something out of the movie Drive. The looping synth melody, the airy explosions, the ambient sound effects, and the panning percussion make up the majority of the song, and provide an elegant setting for the single lyric “Eventually” to be sung and repeated.
I’d be going on a tangent if I tried to tell you what I thought the meaning of this song was, but Wingtip wrote “And when at last you find someone to whom you feel you can pour out your soul, you stop in shock at the words you utter— they are so rusty, so ugly, so meaningless and feeble from being kept in the small cramped dark inside you so long. For her, put your dancing shoes on.” Maybe it doesn’t need to have a deeper meaning, maybe this is just the kind of song that makes you want to dance with the girl you love and make her feel special.
It’s a great track, and if you’re just now discovering Wingtip like me you should throw him a follow on Soundcloud and Twitter.
