Las Vegas rockers Imagine Dragons have been holding down the “local opening act” in Sin City now for awhile. They’ve played this role for bands like Muse, Blue October, Interpol, and current hot band Neon Trees. They’ve also drawn a lot of similarities to fellow Vegas heroes The Killers. But as you dive deeper into their collection of music, you’ll find a band of greater talent, passion, and energy than their counterparts.
Comprised of 6 members, the Dragons play a simple brand of dance rock music — synth laden, high energy, melodic hooks. Coupled with a raucous yet perfectly executed live show, these guys are sure to make some noise of their own in 2011.
Check out “Selene,” “I Don’t Mind,” and “It’s Time,” below.
