Imagine Dragons, Atlas Genius, Nico Vega
8 NW 6th Ave.
[APOCALYPSE ROCK] You’ve probably heard Imagine Dragons’ breakout hit “Radioactive” in one of a million advertisements, movie ads and pre-game sports coverage features in 2012, so you might be sick of the band by now. Still, between the earthy, stomping rock sound and the almost apocalyptic verbal and sonic landscapes of its full-length debut, Night Visions, it’s hard not to be drawn into the spectacle of it all. Frontman Dan Reynolds holds you in his sway with his throat-raking, sky-rending cries, and all the talk of battling inner demons and trying to live a meaningful, rather than somnambulant, life makes for a simultaneously cathartic and draining experience. The Dragons’ seriousness is a tad heavy-handed at times, but otherwise this is top-notch stuff.
