    They frequently write their name with an eyestrain-inducing alteration of lowercase and capital letters (tUnE-yArDs).
    Garbus frequently performs in neon face paint.
    The working title for 'Bird-Brain' was 'White Guilt.'
    Their song 'Water Fountain' was used in ads for Google Pixel.
    Garbus said, 'I don't want to listen to music that you can shop to at Urban Outfitters. But then my stuff is played at Urban Outfitters. So what do I do about that?'
    The Guardian wrote, 'The real virtuosity is in Garbus' voice: she can croon, she can yodel, she can roar, and she also do the kind of octave-tripping coloratura that would floor Mariah Carey in a sing-off.'
    They developed a 'very earnest and intense cult following.'
    They are critical favorites, with almost all their albums landing in the 'universal acclaim' section at Metacritic.
