I would like to start this review off with this is a cover of a song by Imagine Dragons. As popular as the original of this song is I feel that this version deserves more recognition. Their use of none conventional instruments with the multiple vocalists brings this song to a whole new level. Both of these groups have skills far greater than most people in today’s main stream music and it shows with this song.
The combination of string (violin & cello) instruments gives this new age song a throwback to classical music with a modern twist. All other “noises” you hear in this song are made with the singers voices. The way all the sounds overlay each other adds an ethereal sound to their music.
As far as the video is concerned, I love how they demonstrate the title of the song through the surrounds and attire that they chose to use. Using the theme of a dystopia to display “Radioactive” is brilliant and beautifully executed.
