Imagine Dragons hail from a little old dusty, craggy town in Utah, so they know how to take the bleached bones of indie rock, electronica, and pop and transform it into something fit to soundtrack desert nights. Their single "Radioactive" is one of the highest charting songs in the country right now, so even if your hipster Brooklyn friends give you a blank look when you mention its name, most of the country has already been nodding their head to the slow-tempo beats of their 2013 release Night Visions. Helmed by Grammy darling producer Alex Da Kid, the quartet are well on their way to arena fame.
