Lindsey Stirling/Pentatonix's Killer Imagine Dragons Cover!
If you watch
TV, you’re aware that Imagine Dragons's “Radioactive” has pretty
much become the official trailer theme song for
post-apocalyptic/dystopian movies and TV shows like The
Host, “Revolution”, “The Vikings”, and more. And it’s no
wonder – an epic story needs an epic soundtrack. And it’s the
perfect vehicle for a couple of musical acts that have become hits
So, when you combine the flawless vocal stylings of a cappella group Pentatonix with the contemporary-classic violin playing of Lindsey Stirling, this already stirring song takes on all new proportions. Whereas the original Imagine Dragons version has a distinctive revolutionary, call-to-action feel to it, this new take uncovers the hidden melancholy and humanity just under the surface. It’s totes goosebump fodder. Welcome to the New Age, indeed!
