OFFICIAL VID: Imagine Dragons – On Top Of The World

November 14, 2013

Wee, I just had a surprisingly fun time watching the new music video for Imagine Dragon’s super catchy new single On Top Of The World. For those that give a damn, the music video touches on a ton of conspiracy theories, including stuff relating to the Illuminati, Beatles, and so forth. But most of all, it focuses on the Apollo 11 moon landing, which some conspiracy theorists believe was faked. In fact, some people believe that all the footage was faked in a Hollywood studio, and that Stanley Kubrick of all people directed the thing, hence you can catch references to The Shining and 2001: Space Odyssey in this clip too. Sorry for being all cerebral about it, but as always, there’s a huge coincidence here from a personal stand point (I swear I’m subconsciously clairvoyant at times!). I JUST watched the documentary Room 237 like 3 days ago, which is about Kubrick’s The Shining and many different theories about the messages within that oddball, bizarre, thought provoking film. So, of course, it delved deeply into the whole Apollo 11 fake footage thing and Stanley Kubrick’s supposed role. Of course, a few days later, Imagine Dragons puts out THIS video!

Anyhow, back to the music and regularly scheduled programming. Dan Reynolds does a fine job capturing the exuberance that the band must be feeling right now, being on top of the world and all for real. It’s also very cool that his family makes a cameo (his wife is in super cool rock band Nico Vegas, also featured on I Heart Moosiq in the past).

This is an undoubtedly sick remix of  Los Angeles band Nico Vega’s rocking tune Beast by rising Dutch EDM duo Vicetone! It’s raging! Talk about a whole other approach to a song! If you haven’t heard the original cut of Beast yet, which I’m pretty sure I shared awhile back, the official vid is below.

OFFICIAL VID: Nico Vega – Beast

February 7, 2013

Time for some satisfying rambunctious alt rock. Nico Vega dropped a new video for beastly single Beast. It’s off their brand new EP Fury Oh Fury, available now. Despite all the energetic fury, Aja Volkman must be enjoying her new family life with Dan from Imagine Dragons and their 5 month old baby. This is news to me. It’s no wonder they’re going to tour together! It’s a family affair. Congrats to them! Don’t forget some noise cancelling headphones or earplugs for the rock star baby! 

OFFICIAL VID: Nico Vega – Easier

December 15, 2012

Los Angeles alt rock band Nico Vega dropped a great new single recently titled Easier.  It’s the second single from their coming sophomore album We Are The Art. It’s a bright, energetic, magnetic track. 

“It’s socially conscious music about human struggle and rising up,” singer Aja Vokman explains. “It’s written from the underdog’s point of view, which we can really relate to. We’ve always gotten along with people who have had a lot of struggle.”

Here’s the mariachi video for the single… Nico Vega will be supporting Imagine Dragons on tour in America come the new year.
