"THE STORY OF ON THE SUN [IS ONE] OF ARTISTIC COLLABORATION AND PERSISTENCE ON EVERY LEVEL OF THE MUSICAL PROCESS. [...] THERE’S A DECIDEDLY METROPOLITAN, NEW YORK-Y SOUND AND FEEL HERE THAT IS TRUE TO ON THE SUN’S ROOTS. WHILE LISTENING, [...] ONE MAY BE PRONE TO SEE FLASHES OF BLURRED TRAFFIC LIGHTS, STREETS AND SIDEWALKS, LIKE A SPED UP FILM OF NYC TURNING FROM DAY TO NIGHT." -JUDE WARNE, LIVE FOR LIVE MUSIC
"On The Sun feels the music. Every note they play, they live it. [...] When you watch this band, it doesn’t feel like you’re watching, but rather that you’re part of the group." -Parisa Mahdad, KINOFILIA ARTS BLOG
