Indie music is not bound by any particular genre such as classic rock, pop, or rap. Some longtime indie listeners have been wowing the listeners with their amazing voices.
The roots of Indie music can be traced back to the 60s and that’s where music found it as one of the most authentic genres. Indie Music or Independent Music implies the independence of the art, artist, and cultural ethnicity. The music that is created under the Indie genre can give absolute freedom to the artist’s choice of expression. The connectivity with the audience also gets strengthened.
Eden is one of the quintessential indie-pop. His songs combine tenor and falsetto vocals on the complex electronic backdrop, the effect of which can claim the experience of listeners and introduce them into yellow-lit tunnels and long camera exposures. Occasionally, you'll get to hear gentle acoustic sounds and listen to Eden’s emotional depth. His second album - No Future - has turned out to be a winner too!
Alvvays is another genre-bending indie pop, and the sound reminds us of the British genre of the late ’80s for inspiration. Their melodies are full of sweetness, and the backdrops are brimming with a sound that makes you close your eyes and sway to the impact of the music. Their most recent album, Antisocialites, has been their most recent hit.
Death Cab for Cutie
