Wingtip - Fake It

This post was originally published in September 2018.

With a syncopated intro on the muted electric guitar, we quickly get that deep kick drum to drop a la Imagine Dragons. But with a Jacob Collier chorus, and a post that feels informed by dubstep, we clearly have something that straddles more than a few genres.

The thing I like most about this is the primacy of that 3rd quarter note, that permanent snare hit means you never get lost. Every section has a different feel, a purpose and a hummable melody, and every lyric has a nice twist:

“Imma lie awake
next to you and think
there just ain’t enough
love for both of us
but I can fake it”— Wingtip

At its core, this is a song about love, and support, and compromise. It’s a welcome message right now.

San Francisco-born and Los Angeles-based artist, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Wingtip keeps it classy and catchy at every turn. This song is featured on our CHILL NEW Songwriters playlist.
