"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
[MURKY POP ROCK] 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
