Imagine Dragons is a hip new band hailing from Las Vegas, and their highly addictive new album, “Night Visions” blends several different musical genres in an entertaining way. Their old fashioned song-writing is lively with a comforting tone perfect for a relaxing, do nothing day. Yet, at the same time, their modern beat holds strong meaningful lyrics that can only come from Las Vegas natives, discussing the glitter and glitz of what can only be the Strip, as well as the desolate and isolated feel of the desert. The first song on the track, “Radioactive,” has a heavy beat and an addictive sound. In the track, “Demons,” the singer begs his lover to look into his eyes where his demons lie, and accept him for who he is. This band’s sound successfully blends rock, modern, and techno music while still containing highly addictive euphoric music, meant to make you stop and listen to its message.
