"Mona & Maria’s music conveys mental images of the brief intensity of Nordic summers, of the fleeting happiness of warmer, sunnier days ... In My Sun, Mona & Maria give the listener a real treat; a sonic time capsule of better days tinged with the famed Nordic melancholia. It’s a welcome pick-me-up and antidote to the imminent chills and all-round tedium of another long winter." (FolkRadio UK)
"Like Peer Gynt, Svalbard and the aurora borealis, Norwegian duo Mona & Maria’s music exists somewhere on the border between wakefulness and sleep ... Mona Andersen and Maria Knudsen emerge as mellow melodists in their own fully-fledged, folk-infused partnership. Their debut album is most striking for its invigorating bursts of clarity - euphonic and euphoric, transcendentally fresh and refreshing ... Every track on My Sun merits and holds attention, testimony to the quality of both the singing and the stirring, psych-tinged arrangements, and owing in part to the contributions of the supporting cast of instrumentalists as well. Fluttering flute and keys add a visceral counterpoint to the low rolling tones of ethereal final song ‘Shivers in the Blue’, framing the windswept soundscape to great effect. This is sophisticated, seraphic folk-pop that seeps under the skin and into the heart." (The Line of Best Fit)
