Nostalgia today is evident everywhere in the music industry, reminding us of how it was in our childhood and when we were in high school. Memories are persistent, probably because we are all trying to remember what life was like pre-covid.
Sonja Midtune’s newest releases (Golden Girl and Growing Up), maybe it will spark those memories for people who are still trying to remember those days before COVID-19.
I wonder if that was Sonja’s intention when making this EP, but I am sure she welcomed it.

Growing Up by Sonja Midtune Review
Growing Up reminds me of my high school days when I listened to a lot of indie pop. These are very nostalgic memories that are full of bittersweet happiness. I would recommend Growing Up to fans of Lindsey Ferguson and Mallrat.
Golden Girl continues that nostalgic feel that Growing Up introduces Sonja into her music, along with a music video that is well produced. I like how she uses her vocals in this song, and the electric guitar is an excellent addition to her musical sound. I would recommend Golden Girl to fans of 80’s indie pop musicians that utilize the electronic guitar.
