In the words of legendary DJ/producer Andrew Weatherall, Warm Digits create "machine funk kraut-a-delia." Their brew of live drums, guitar and electronics betray a love of Neu!, Kraftwerk, Giorgio Moroder, My Bloody Valentine and Boards of Canada while motorik percussion, electronic basslines, Keith Levene-style guitar chops and squelchy analogue warmth coalesce. For their new recording, the band has sharpened up the elements of their sound for a set of crisp, propulsive and melodically rich songs, and for the first time on selected songs have collaborated with some of their favorite vocalists: Peter Brewis of Field Music, Sarah Cracknell of Saint Etienne, Devon Sproule, and Mia La Metta of Beards.
Wireless World is loosely themed around a present-day that teeters between progress and collapse. The band explain, "Our experience of the world and our states of mind are shaped and thrilled by unimaginably exciting leaps in technology, and yet that world will only last for a few moments as we fail to find a way to act collectively on rising temperatures, the failures of democracy and the unstoppable hunger for exploitation of the ground under our feet. This record is our attempt to make music from our experience of this present that teeters between celebration and devastation."
These themes are evident throughout the record. The first single taken from the album, "End Times" features vocals from Peter Brewis of Field Music, who has taken the contemporary atmosphere of looming catastrophe and filtered it through the song's incipient funk and disco flavors.
