Barely a year since the release of their hit album Evolve, Imagine Dragons are back with plenty more to say on their fourth record, Origins.
The Las Vegas rockers have teamed up again with London-born producer Alex da Kid (who was behind the controls for the 2012 breakthrough single “Radioactive” plus three tracks on Evolve), and Swedish songwriting/production duo Mattman & Robin (who produced four songs on Evolve including first single “Believer”).
Frontman Dan Reynolds has clearly been working out those pop writing muscles – he deals in songs that don’t try to trick the band’s young fanbase with pretentious metaphors. Most of his lyrics feel deeply personal, perhaps because they’re based on his own experiences or tackle issues he feels passionately about. “Zero” addresses deep-rooted feelings of inadequacy, imposter syndrome and anxiety: “Let me show you what it’s like to never feel / like I’m good enough for anything that’s real,” Reynolds sings.
