Los Angeles indie-pop sensation Nick Perloff-Giles, often known by his artist moniker, Wingtip, announces his new EP, Get Well Soon, will drop on August 4th. Adding, “This upcoming music focuses on the awkward moments during a first date where you are alone – heading to the date, coming home, and all the time in between.” It’s a relatable and thoughtful EP, which touches on feelings and thoughts that everyone has, but maybe keeps to themselves when dating.
Today he shares a taste with new single “Down” featuring Nashville singer-songwriter Bre Kennedy. His delectable pop craftsmanship is beautifully executed in the track with Bre Kennedy’s eloquent vocals perfectly matching Wingtip’s silky-smooth charm.
“I wrote ‘Down’ with OSTON on a kind of foggy, blah day with OSTON. She and I just talked relationships and ambiguities and difficulties in them and the words just came out. I played it for Bre, who I was hanging a lot and writing with at the time, and it just made sense to have her on it. It’s one of my favorite records I’ve been a part of,” says Wingtip.
Emerging from Los Angeles by way of his native San Francisco in 2016, he entrenched himself as a genre-bending disruptor. During 2017, his breakout “Rewind” impacted virally and eventually tallied over 44 million Spotify streams and counting. 2019’s “Heartworks” reeled in 17.6 million Spotify streams followed by “Happiness” with 6.3 million Spotify streams. 2020 saw him serve up All Your Friends Are Here highlighted by the likes of “Strangers” and “Demons.”
Along the way, he became a trusted collaborator and sought-after co-writer, notably penning Céline Dion’s chart-topping “Imperfections” with multiplatinum alternative pop powerhouse Lauv and collaborating with Vin Diesel on “Feel Like I Do.” He completed his first headlining North American tour with a full band in 2022. The upcoming EP, follows his notable 2022 EP, Everything Forever, and recent singles, “Mr. 29” and “Manipulator.”
