Imagine Dragons have come an incredibly long way since their days of performing six-hour long sets for casino players on the Las Vegas strip. Since their debut album Night Visions was released last September, the album has spawned three massive hits (“It’s Time,” “Radioactive,” and “Demons,”), been certified platinum, and launched the band into multiple […]
When asked about the affinity many have towards sad music, Nicole Henry says, “I’d hate to say that you have to be in pain to feel stuff… but it’s true.” Henry continued by mentioning the positive response she gets from her audience when she sings up-tempo songs, adding, “that’s the thing about jazz: you can […]

Camera Obscura’s latest, Desire Lines, just came out in June and the band is currently […]
