“I’ve turned into a monster, a monster, a monster/And it keeps getting stronger”

On the heels of their blockbuster 2012 debut album Night Visions, the Nevada alt-rock quartet Imagine Dragons submitted new songs across the board, to the soundtracks of several movies and even an iPhone app. Infinity Blade III, the third in a highly successful iOS game series, eventually featured “Monster,” a new Imagine Dragons track co-produced by their mentor, Alex da Kid, a British pop producer responsible for rap hits like B.o.B’s “Airplanes” and Eminem’s “Love the Way You Lie.” “Monster” follows through with the indietronica” formula of “Radioactive” and other Imagine Dragons hits, while making a minor blip on rock radio.
