Â Ponytail Press Quotes:
“Giving a Deerhoof-like scissor kick to traditional song structure…jerks froms No Age’s loose, trilling ambience to wiry, explosive bursts, with spaghetti Western backing vocals and Siegel chirping something like, “Awaywegonowawaywego!”… before long everything goes berserk again. It’s all enough to make you believe in the spirituality of ice cream. Away we go to 31 flavors.” – Pitchfork
“the first single from Ice Cream Spiritual…opening ambiance (that upward shot of strings) and Molly Siegel’s tongues-speaking doggerrel and savant Yoko-isms are hard to forget…it’s worth seeing ’em do this stuff live, too…” – Stereogum
“Known for its infectious jams and barnyard noise lyrics, Ponytail is a Baltimore Art School four-piece with the pomp and preposterousness to become the next buzzing indie darling.” – Impose Magazine
