After signing to Republic Records in 2016, Los Angeles-based artist Nicholas Perloff-Giles, known by his artist name Wingtip
, spent 2017 touring behind the success of global smash “Rewind,” which amassed 35 million streams and counting.
He soon followed with multiple singles, including "Walls” ft. Delacey
, “Space For Us” ft. Youngr
, & “Cross Your Mind” ft. morgxn
, which Perloff-Giles co-wrote with multi-platinum artist Lauv
. Emboldened by two years on the road and a growing discography, he picked up the microphone to craft his forthcoming 2018 EP ‘Ghosts of Youth’ which sees Perloff-Giles stepping into the spotlight of the Wingtip
project for the first time. Hinging on airy synths, gentle guitars & intricate lyricism, the first single “Pavement” illuminates this evolution as the striking delivery hypnotizes listeners: “I wanted to capture little moments & images. A favorite thing to write about is the moment in a relationship when things imperceptibly change in subtle fashion. Musically & lyrically, it captures the feeling of drifting away from your partner & trying to hold on to a memory or past version of that person.” Lead by a strong vocal performance & renewed production style, Perloff-Giles truly shares his story, which he hopes connects to people throughout the EP: “When you’re a producer you don’t necessarily think about music as a window into what you go through. Now, I’m allowing people closer. If they connect to these small moments, I’m happy.”
