Musically, their latest album is a tamer version of the explosive post rock visions of Mogwai or Explosions in the Sky, but with more varied instrumentation -- strings, and *shock* some vocal parts here and there -- and it's more ambient and cinematic, as apposed to the slow-crescendo-to-the-boom of most post rock. Less mathy than most, WangWen's alternative background bleeds through the expansive song writing in early Smashing Pumpkins crunchy guitar tones in places.


Further information

  • For their record IV, Wang Wen had actually thought of getting it post-produced by Neil of God Is An Astronaut, however due to GIAA's touring schedule, mixing was given to someone in Dalian.[1]
