Watch Jonquil perform "Compound" live:

Jonquil continues to woo the hearts of America, making fans out of everyone who hears their music.

Most recently Nylon Magazine said "Fighting Smiles" and "It Never Rains" [are] where the group's faint, retro-tinged sound really shines" and American Songwriter boasted "...if you like the beach party vibe, stick with Jonquil." Back home, NME featured the Blessing Force collective, a group of musicians (of which Jonquil and Foals are proud members) aimed at taking the Oxford scene by storm.

"Jonquil's self-proclaimed "Paul Simon's take on The Smiths" tag nails them well, however the six-piece also encompasses a level of intricacy not unlike a more subtle Dirty Projectors without the R'n'B. Emerging initially as the more folky end of Oxford's burgeoning math rock scene that brought us Foals and Youthmovies, Jonquil have constantly evolved and morphed into a very accomplished and mature band with a now newly focused, fresh output of work." -- Dan Monsell // Rockfeedback // 2010
