The song is called “Infectious,” and it’s, well, exactly that. The song’s 90’s-tinged summer-rock sensibilities channel a K’s Choice / Wheatus vibe, perfect for those who yearn for those sweet, sweet days of 3D Doritos and JNCO jeans.
Since Chelsea O’Donnell (AKA Wolf) first found a Buffalo stage... she’s carved out an independent presence, one that could inhabit the spotlight alone, yet fill a room with a group’s worth of raw expression... Now flanked with Bill O’Connor and Ben Randall, Wolf is ready to rock.
Wolf does, indeed, howl… and it’s one of the biggest assets of this solo-act-turned-fem-led trio. Chelsea O’Donnell’s voice is thick, muscular, and pitchy in the best ways: there’s nothing waif-ish happening here, and it injects a welcome, no bullshit punk honesty to the band’s lo-fi melodies.
Wolf... has evolved over the past year and a half into one of Buffalo’s most promising alternative rock projects.
