"Current and former members of Jen Moon and The Gossip make up this post-punk power-pop duo. Playing the almost-as-big-as-her bass, Jen Moon utilizes the instrument more like a disorted guitar (a la John Entwistle). Her sonically electrifying voice carries over the lines with beautiful angst (think Siouxsie and the Banshees or Yeah Yeah Yeahs). Kathy Mendonca adds her flair of perfectly pounding drums that keep your head bopping and feet tapping." ElevenPDX Magazine. 

"[Old Wars is] like two lady werewolves climbed out of a swamp and started up a bad-ass rock n' roll band." Colleen Neilson

"Old Wars takes pop songwriting and punk spunk evoking the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, filters it through simple drum-and-bass instrumentation and emerges with sludge-coated earworms suggesting tremendous potential. The duo, which comprises drummer Kathy Mendonca (of the Gossip) and bassist-singer Jen Moon, came together in 2010 and dropped a debut on local tape label Cassingle and Loving It." Willamette Week
