The “indie” section of alternative music is one of the most unique areas of music, in my opinion. Every song is extremely unique, crafting a sound unlike any other tune you might know, while still fitting into what we know as indie or alternative.
Indie can sometimes come across as an intimidating title. When you hear an indie artists name, they’re usually obscure and hard to pinpoint. Again, this is something I think very niche to what we know as indie music. Quirkiness is the cornerstone to this genre of music, which even shines through in the songs released, their sound and lyrics.
