With a head nodding beat and a smorgasbord of electronic effects blasting off in all directions, “Zero to 60” is a complex, dancy synth-pop tune from A. Wolf & Her Claws.
Recent years have seen vocalist and songwriter Aby Wolf develop into a shining singing force, and it is in full effect on “Zero to 60.” Jazzy and bright, her voice rides along calmly on top of the avalanche of electronic instrumentals. Her easy melody provides a counter balance to the song’s chaos.
A. Wolf & Her Claws’s otherworldly textures are playfully shaped by bandmates Jesse Whitney’s forward-thinking electronic production and Joey Van Phillips’ expert vibraphone and acoustic kit work. The crisp beats and synth revelry lay a perfect foundation for Wolf and Mohn’s harmonized vocals.
