Transcript of Imagine Dragons

Imagine Dragons Dan Reynolds,
D Wayne Sermon, Ben McKee,
and Daniel Platzman Night Visions is their
debut studio album released
on September 4, 2012 Mix Coldplay and U2,
add a hint of The Killers,
and you'll get: Imagine Dragons Their sound is percussion-heavy,
indie/alternative, and old fashioned,
but with electronic, rock, and
pop elements in it as well Imagine Dragons
is a four-piece rock band
based in Las Vegas, Nevada They were formed in 2008 and since have released three EPs and one full album The album debuted at number
two on the Billboard 200 in the United
States, selling more than 83,000 copies
within its first week. They performed their first single, It's Time
on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,
Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Late
Night with Jimmy Fallon. Gregory Heaney (Allmusic) said:
"Night Visions is an album that,
at least for a few minutes at a time,
will make everyday life seem just a little bit bigger" Brian Mansfield (USA Today) said:
"The mandolin hook of It's Time, the jaunty whistle
of On Top of the World, the burbling guitar in
Demons. Those creative touches may seem
like small details, but it's that imagination
that gives these Dragons teeth." Night Visions is primarily an alternative rock and indie rock album, however, it also uses influences of arena rock, dubstep, folk, hip-hop and pop, all of which have developed over time to create modern music such as this When given the opportunity,
this band goes big. They aren’t afraid
to throw in violin, mandolin, or vocal harmonies
to get the full, epic sound they're known for.

The dark, thoughtfulness of “Demons” and “Bleeding Out” are contrasted with the happy-go-lucky of
“On Top of the World” and “Underdog” and, in the wake of a theme of giving up, of no redemption,
we feel inspired because of the sound.
This is the influence of Imagine Dragons. The name Imagine Dragons
is an anagram of a phrase that the band members agreed on and no one else knows what that phrase is. They say that, "It’s the only thing we like to keep to ourselves." This band is similar to many
bands before it, in that it has a compelling sound and a timeless image. It has had no influence upon the future yet, but by looking at its predecessors you can see that
one day they'll have a heavy
influence upon future music Radioactive Emotional struggle is central
to Imagine Dragons. From the beginning
it’s been the group’s goal to take the pain they've
each experienced in life and spin it into something redemptive and uplifting. That transformation – of emotional pain into art – is what drives them as people and it’s also what inspired their first hit. That balance between riding steady and risking it
all is the core tension at the heart of Imagine
Dragons’ sound and their identity and it’s a
reflection of the city they call home.
