“It’s so brutal and technical.”
Seriously the strangest thing I have seen in some time!
I heard about Imagine Dragons a few months ago when a few SpaceX employees I knew were claiming the song “Radioactive” as their unofficial anthem before their successful launch of the Dragon Capsule; which went on to dock with the ISS in late May.
Since then Imagine Dragons has become a household name with their music finding its way onto some of the NBC Olympic ads, and further fueled by the news that they will have their first full length album “Night Visions” releasing in September.
The Make Believe is an up and coming band based out of New Zealand. They popped up on my radar a few months back with their incredible cover of One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful“. Admit it, you’ve caught yourself singing along to it when it comes on the radio! This video, of front men Tyler Vivian and Mike Lake, sitting on a futon on a Wednesday afternoon or something propelled them into the spotlight and helped them get a record deal within a few weeks of this video going viral.
Since then The Make Believe has released a single, “Give It A Million” and are currently in the works on a full length studio album. So get your boy-band-pants on and get ready to feel so satisfied and yet oh so guilty about their pop-punkiness in all it’s glory.

So you may remember my post from a few months back talking about the incredible cover of Somebody That I Used to Know that a band called Walk off the Earth covered. Well if you have been itching to see them ever since like I have and you are going to be in the Austin, Texas area tomorrow evening you should go out around 7:00-ish and see them play at Stubb’s. Info HERE!
I have personally never seen these guys but they look like they would be a lot of fun to see live and definitely worth the super cheap ticket price of $15. Video below if you need a refresher.
So apparently a lot of people are familiar with this video, however, it blew my mind a few days ago and I keep thinking about it.
So for all of you who have yet to watch this. I hope you get as big of a kick out of it as I did!!
