Hi everyone, this is Ysabel from Musiio. Kicking where Hazel left off and serving up Indie Rock this time!
Indie Rock, an umbrella genre that is identified more by its ethos than a musical approach, is one that is not easily - or can be - objectively identifiable by ear. In making music that suits their personal taste more than selling records (a major label thing), Indie bands exploit that freedom to explore sounds, emotions and subjects that can have limited appeal to the mainstream audience. Music that may seem too whimsical, too melancholic, too delicate, too raw, too abrasive for the general public, yet balancing these leanings with a pop sensibility.
With the ever-growing list of subgenres and styles, the right question here is then - How do you like your Indie? Personally I’m big on garage-influenced Crumbsnatchers and Night Beats, and new wave artists a la Single Bullet Theory.
Share your favourite indie style by commenting on this post!
