San Francisco-to-LA transplant Nicholas Perloff-Giles, known as his stage name Wingtip, is bringing summer to a proper close with his wistfully pop-tinged track, ‘Fake It’. This second single off his forthcoming debut Ghosts of Youth EP has the burgeoning artist stepping outside of his DJ/producer duties and into the driver’s seat of his own starring vehicle.

‘Fake It’ explores the complexities of the singer’s own sensibilities in forgoing his happiness for the sake of someone else’s. Lost within his delicate reveries, Wingtip stiches together the sonic pieces of all things pop—indie, electro, and synth. ‘Fake It’ is laced with comforting yet sleek arrangements that feel refreshing inside the multi-genre tone. On his songwriting craftsmanship, Perloff-Giles uncovers fortitude in his youthful vulnerability while putting the past rightfully where it belongs, behind him. Ultimately, ‘Fake It’ captures a certain feeling of love and life with the light and dark that bleeds both parallel and sometimes simultaneously together.

Wingtip shared this with us on the meaning behind ‘Fake It’:

"The concept in 'Fake It' is one of my favorites that I've written - it's about going through anxiety and depression but not wanting to worry someone out of love for them. It's a sentiment that I've definitely felt before but have never been sure how to articulate until this song."

Wingtip’s previous single was the folk-pop endeavor ‘Pavement’, from this past July. Prior to these two singles, Wingtip had been collaborating these past couple of years with the likes of morgxn, Youngr, Delacey, and Sophie Strauss. With Strauss, he scored a massive hit with 2017’s ‘Rewind’ that accumulated 35 million Spotify streams.

Wingtip’s debut EP, Ghosts of Youth drops on September 21st. He begins a tour with Petit Biscuit on October 17th.
