Panic Priest, None of Your Concern, DJ Greg Corner (Kill Hannah)
Goth-pop duo WINGTIPS recently released their debut record ‘EXPOSURE THERAPY’ on Artoffact Records. The duo comprises Chicago-goth mainstays Vincent and Hannah, producing unforgettable music that has already captured the attention of media and festival taste-makers alike. WINGTIPS was officially formed in 2014 by Vincent after having informally used the moniker for a number of previous experimental solo performances. The new record, which finds its guitar work inherently in the vain of Disintegration-era Cure, while injecting electronic elements you might hear at home on records by OMD, is an androgynous sound of transition. Interpolating darkly shimmering layers of angular guitar and pulsating darkwave, WINGTIPS sharpens their anthemic rush with an increasing penchant for melody and an atmosphere equally informed by post-punk as sweeping electronica. “EXPOSURE THERAPY” is a contextualization of new romantic for post-millennial end times, and a refreshing mix of synthpop and darkwave with hooks so compelling they are cinematic in scope.
Death. Sex. Doomed Romance. These three simple phrases define the sound and thematic presence of Panic Priest. The musical project of singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Jack Armondo (of “dark pop” duo My Gold Mask), Panic Priest is centered around Armondoʼs deep, crooning vocals while weaving together electronic beats, dreamy guitars and synths. Panic Priest creates midnight melodies that wonʼt soon leave your memory as dawn breaks.
Celebrating the release of their debut album PRIMER, NONE OF YOUR CONCERN is a Chicago based electronic duo comprised of two anonymous masked artists that were raised on different sides of the music spectrum. One is a classically trained performer, teacher and south side dance instructor, while the other fronts a local LGBTQ+ punk band. The music can best be described as a blend of dark wave and EBM with subtle hip hop influences.
