Imagine Dragons: Hell and Silence (ep)

~ Friday, 20 August 2010
Las Vegas's Imagine Dragons have crafted an impressive commercial sound that pitches them somewhere between The Killers and Athlete on this 5 track ep. Front man Dan Reynolds singing style sounds far more British than you would expect but then again the bands overall sound owes more to British bands than it does to anything on their side of the Atlantic.

All Eyes has an electro rock feel with a killer chorus and brings to mind The Killers circa Hot Fuss as does Hear Me. This is an ep that has indie cool but with the bigger picture in mind. Personal favourite is the wonderful Selene which proves that these guys have the ability to create a sound that is all their own. It is hard not to imagine that they will have a posse of major labels sniffing around on the back of this ep.
