Said by others:

“Eggen bjuder på mjuka toner med snygga solon samt drivigt och svängigt komp. Hennes lyhördhet och sköna solopassager får mig att tänka på Steve Swallows återhållsamma spel.” – Andreas Backelund, Lira musikmagasin

”In a repertoire based on relaxed rhythms and original songs with English lyrics, bassist Anne Marte Eggen and her quartet We Float reflected that Nordic coolness.”  – Doug Ramsey, The Wall Street Journal

”We heard We Float when they opened for us in Malmo, Sweden. We were very impressed by their skill, musicality, and original concept. I hope we get the chance to see them perform again.” – Scott Henderson and the Supertrio 

“övriga instrument dämpas och elbasen lyfts fram – då hörs det verkligen hur Anne Marte Eggen, bassist och kompositör, leder musiken framåt.” – Bengt Eriksson, Trelleborgs Allehanda
