A relatively new band, from Las Vegas, established in 2008, Imagine Dragons have had one of the best receptions after releasing their debut album Night Visions.
That is not all the band have been doing this year, throwing themselves head first into the music scene with a tour that sold out in all but two venues. The album itself has reached record sales, selling over 84,000 copies within the first week of release.
The song ‘Time’ has been featured on several TV adverts, Glee, during Wimbledon and in the newly released film commercial; ‘The Perks of being a Wallflower’.
Night Visions has been described as one of the slickest, glossies-sounding albums of the year with Time winning song, record and single of the year in almost every award ceremony.
Most of the songs have a dubstep tone to them, meddling in hip-hop and joy-core, each song individually a masterpiece. Songs such as Amsterdam, Underdog and Working man, sending out a happy go lucky feeling to the listener. As if to say “you only live once, make the most of it”.
The songs are catchy and a great inspiration, reassurance that big music companies can create beautiful pieces of art and not just the mundane drivel that is currently in the charts.
2013 is predicted to be as big of a year as 2012 has proven to be for the band, with plans for a Europe tour and visits in American with tickets already on sale.
