While Parastrophics (MONKEY 022CD/LP), Mouse On Mars' 10th studio album, was recorded over a period of 5 years, WOW is of a much more spontaneous nature. Right after Parastrophics was released in 2012, Mouse On Mars started collecting the ideas for WOW, a bass-heavy, club-oriented album. The final assemblage took about five weeks and was finished by the end of July. WOW is based on immediacy. A bass drama of three letter words. Intuition, punch, massiveness. The host who leads through the entire album is Dao Anh Khanh, whom the band met during their Asia tour in 2011. Dao is a performer and sculptor from Vietnam, who invented a fantasy language which the band recorded together with him in an arcane Hanoi studio. Further voice contributions are from the Argentinian girl-punk band Las Kellies and Eric D. Clarke. All together, it makes a story which is epic, abstract, intense and ridiculous at the same time. Mouse On Mars gone theatrical. WOW also features the wretchUP, an iPhone app which was invented by Mouse On Mars during the preparations of their orchestral work "Paeanumnion." The band also used this effect app on Parastrophics and live during their 2012 album tour. If everything goes according to plan, the wretchUP will be available via iTunes around the time of the release of WOW.
