"'Mad for it' is the impression one gets when listening to Heavy Lights' new album, Mad Minds. And it’s not just the name that conjures up the phrase. The Frederick-based quartet’s enthusiasm for their music is evident in the record’s wistful, playful melodies and the joyful guitar-pop that permeates Heavy Light’s sound. You can also hear it in the cohesiveness of Mad Minds. This LP was constructed with care." - Gregory Ayers, DC Music Download
"It’s hard to make psychedelic rock feel not just accessible but enticing, and these Frederick-locals have done it." - Bryce Rudow, Brightest Young Things
"The soundscape they create sounds epic. It howls at the cosmos as the band leaves me with one of the most enjoyable debuts I have heard in quite some time. No joke. I know I'm gushing but these guys are the real deal. These songs are more than well put together. The songs on Mad Minds are addictive pockets of sound that hit upon the gamut of human emotions." - Ted Rogen,
