Imagine Dragons was already a seasoned band even before most of us had heard of their Alternative-Pop hit “It’s Time” being played in numerous radio stations, movie trailers and even portions of it used in commercials. The band itself has been actively gigging in the Indie circuit and releasing independently produced EP’s since 2008.
“Imagine Dragons” is one of the newest (mainstream) bands to get a following and a surge in popularity for more than a year — first, in the United States and only the last few months, here in the Philippines. When I first got to listen to their biggest hit to date, namely “It’s Time”, I thought it was a bit folksy–with their use of the mandolin, handclaps, and background style of singing. At first, the qualities of the song didn’t seem to fit in the bill of sounding anything like a modern rock band but instead, of a band that has a wide range of styles and not merely adopted to the latest music trends such as Electronic and Dub-step.
