WOW! Signal is the 5th and final track off of The Lightsenders debut album 'Derek Is An Astronaut'. This post-rock instrumental album tells the story of a futuristic dystopian society of humans that are forced to search for a permanent habitat away from Earth or face extinction. This album takes you on a journey that modulates between despair and triumph as we navigate the cosmos, sending light signals transcoded with data, trying desperately to find someone to save us from an ecosystem that is actively fighting for its own survival.

Several centuries since Derek made his heroic voyage to the outer reaches, hope being all but lost, scientists receive a return signal for the first time in human history. We have danced on light beams throughout the galaxies looking for a new home. And with this first contact we were no longer referred to as human but only as ...... The Lightsenders
