The band Imagine Dragons, has been around since 2008. They have performed gigs all over the Indie circuit. Once signed onto Interscope Records, they were ready to make a grand entrance with their debut album, “Night Visions.”

The band had to pick what would be their chosen hit single to enter into the Billboard 200. The hit single selected, “Radioactive,” hit off to their rising fame.

“I really like Imagine Dragons. Their indie style is really influential and sounds really cool,” said Jory Gould, 10.

Imagine Dragons hails from the well-known city, Las Vegas. It has been compared to another well-known native band, The Killers.

The two former Indie bands have been compared frequently to each other not just because they happen to originate from the same place, but because of their performing style, musical influences, and how they put emphasis on the creation of their songs.

“They have this unique style of song that I really enjoy listening to. It differs from the other hit singles nowadays,” said Mary Fry, 10.

Many of their popular singles include: “Radioactive,” “Demons,” and “It’s Time.”

“I really love the song “Demons” because it is very different compared to the rest of their songs,” said Maya Sheth, 10.

Amy Deng, Managing Editor
Hello! My name is Amy Deng and I am a senior at Sycamore High School. This is my fourth year on staff and I currently hold the position of managing editor for the print magazine, The Leaf. My job is to design the style sheet, mentor new students, and oversee the design process of the print platform. I enjoy writing articles on multiple genres, including feature, news, and sports. In particular, I work with several design programs such as Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop to create pages and layouts for the Leaf. I joined journalism hoping to experience hands-on news coverage and to improve my writing skills. Over the years, I have grown to enjoy and value my experiences in the classroom. Through collaborating with other staff members, I have developed and improved my communication and leadership skills; and through working as a team, we have been able to produce an award-winning, student-run news magazine. I am excited for the new year and can’t wait to see what it holds! More about myself: I have always been involved with sports ever since I was a child. I participated in synchronized swimming for seven years and am currently a part of the school varsity swim team and during the offseason I am part of a club team, BASH. In addition, I have always been passionate about my cultural roots which is why I am the vice president of the Chinese Club. My role is to lead club presentations and organize bi-weekly activities. I also volunteer at Bethesda North Hospital as an escort where I discharge patients. Additionally, my favorite hobby is listening to music. I enjoy a wide span of genres and a few of my favorite artists include: Two Door Cinema Club, Mac Demarco, Beach House, Bon Iver, Chance the Rapper, Childish Gambino, and Stevie Wonder.
