WOW is:
Matt Cribb Vox / Guitar / Electronics
Bree Carter Vox / Bass


WOW is the brainchild of Sydney resident Matt Cribb, the collective result of not being able to play any instruments properly and spending too much time locked in the back room of his house, with a strobe light on, messing around with drum machines and cheap keyboards.

Bree Carter rounds off the boy / girl duo, bringing her amazing sixth sense of pop sensibility to the table, and an ability to know what sounds belong in what parts and which songs need what sounds and where to put those sounds and so on and so on.

WOW passed around some home recorded demos in November 2007 which resulted in high rotation on FBi radio in Sydney and several appearances on Triple J’s Unearthed website and television show as a “featured artist”.

WOW then went on to play their first few live sets, supporting groups such as Crystal Castles from Canada, Pets With Pets & The Emergency from Melbourne, and Theatre Of Disco & Cassette Kids from Sydney, and also appearing at Sydney’s Field Day festival at the Domain on New Years Day, alongside Girl Talk, Spank Rock, Uffie, Midnight Juggernauts, Damn Arms & many more.


REVIEWS & COMMENTS....

Rock n Roll Wire

This Sydneyside duo -- who formed in November -- have hit on the kind of emotional static where early Factory releases and Euro synthwave reside. Totally killer.

The Sunday Experience (UK)

Those of you who love your electro slightly dipping below the out there regions of left field minimalism may do well to check this out. WOW are Australian boy / girl duo Bree and Matt who it seems have a thing for acutely icy and primal no wave / new wave dialects, their retro recipes disturbingly consumed by edgily paranoiac detached accents and bearing down with a de-sensitised monochromatic knowingness, all at once caustic, acerbic and fractured 'common species' is a futuristic mantra of sorts.

Frankly all considered cool record collections need this.

Drum Media music mag in Australia 28 Feb 2008

Horrifically out of tune boy / girl vocals, electronic drums that sound like someone alternatively kicking a cupboard and slapping an aluminium roof with a cricket bat, hollowed out bass guitar, guitars sharp enough to garrotte people with a laser-gun-duet-on-a-vintage-spaceship sounds - yes, WOW is the non-musician's musician / explorer in the garage having the recording party of a lifetime. Pointless trash wearing a try-and-guess-if-we're-being-ironic sneer, this should do fantastically well.


Very tasty dance pop track. It's fun. It moves. It makes you want to move. That's all I need. Thanks WOW.

The end product .. is brilliant: disco-punk, with an element of pop to it... Each song maintains it’s own individuality throughout, a rarity in modern times in which songs just seem to amalgamate into one general ‘sound’. If you were to throw The Lost Valentinos, Crystal Castles and Gang of Four into a blender, you’d end up with a WOW smoothie.
Illegal Tender Magazine


WOW. .low-fi hipster guitar dance. Common Species just does it for me. I'd go as far as saying it's the perfect house party track Really great..

Sydney boy/girl duo WOW seem to have come up out of nowhere — and bam, hitting us upside the head In short WOW encompasses that signature Australia sound you already know and love: dirty synth mixed with guitar that will make you shake and dance in your skinny jeans.

Howdy! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4. I'm trying to find a template
or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue. If you have any suggestions,
please share. Thank you!

When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
Bless you!

This design is incredible! You definitely
know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and
your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.
..HaHa!) Great job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than
that, how you presented it. Too cool!

Hello this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if
blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I was curious if you ever considered changing the page
layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to
say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.

Maybe you could space it out better?

My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .
net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using
Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am worried about
switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.
net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
