"The lyrics could sound didactic in other hands, but they’re delivered with the tenderness and feather-lightness of a young person discovering these things for the first time — and meaning them." Time Magazine

"California artist mxmtoon's "fever dream" is a nostalgic song about wanting more than, as she sings, "restless mornings." The '90s-leaning singer-songwriter production and her sweet melodies make sure mxmtoon eventually breaks out of her malaise. She comes out on the other side with an empowered message for her listeners: "Take your time, enjoy it/ Every fleeting moment." 
Paper Magazine 

"mxmtoon has developed into a reliable songwriting presence since her 2018 debut, and new single “Lessons” offers a lush arrangement and message of not overthinking what you cannot control -- sage advice for us all right now." 
Billboard 

“‘dawn’ marks the start of something bolder for mxmtoon”
NME

"...it showcases the blissful beauty of making a space for yourself amidst a busy world." 
Uproxx

"Her new EP dawn is her most ambitious collection to date, showcasing the artist’s range over seven tracks that touch on love, anxiety, authenticity, and self-acceptance."
American Songwriter 

"mxmtoon's music is akin to an emotional revelation” 
Ones To Watch 

"Her gentle wave of self-reflections are both uplifting and grounding at the same time."  
LADYGUNN

“Her lyrics are wise in their simple depictions, and her vulnerability is similarly straightforward, making her relatable to not only her Gen Z fans, but listeners of all ages yearning for something that’s direct and still serene. " 
Cinnamon Magazine
