"In Sandra Kolstad, Norway has finally found a worthy representative for electronic pop music".
(5/6, Aftenposten, Norways biggest newspaper, 15.04.11)

"Queen of electronic pop"
(5/6, Dagsavisen, 29.04.11)

"Berlin's electro music scene has a little Norwegian gem on it's hands and it's called Sandra Kolstad. With a wonderful synth-pop sound and instantly danceable and poptastic tunes we can't see this lady staying off your radar for too much longer."

"Sandra has some of that strong and independent you can also find in Jenny Wilson and Jenny Hval. As Robyn, she combines industrial techno with modern noise pop. That goes very well with her dark, dramatic voice".
(Dagens næringsliv, 20.04.11)

"Sandra Kolstad (...) composes synthesized constellations that provide meaningful resistance"
