Mumford & Sons

Mumford & Sons This English folk rock band has been making itself known Stateside ever since the debut of their album "Sigh No More," proving themselves to be one of the most awesome indie bands. This band has also steadily become one of my favorites. With lovely and deep tunes such as "I Will Wait" and "White Blank Page," it won't be long before Mumford & Sons becomes a household name!


Passion Pit

Passion Pit Led by indie frontman Michael Angelakos, Passion Pit has been making ripples in the airwaves for quite some time. "Sleepyhead" and "Talk a Walk" are sure to become your summer anthems! Each tune by Passion Pit is radio-friendly and catchy; I can never quite get any of the songs from “Gossamer” out of my head and I'm pretty sure that I will never want to!


The Lumineers

The Lumineers I find The Lumineers' music to be quite soothing and exuberant. Winning over the hearts of many indie lovers with their song "Ho Hey," this band's debut album shows that there are more gems to offer. Listen to "Dead Sea," "Flapper Girl," and "Stubborn Love," and you'll find it hard to disagree!


Florence + the Machine

Florence + the Machine I personally like to hail Florence Welsh as the queen of the music scene. Her powerful rock ballads "Cosmic Love" and "Heavy in Your Arms" won me over to the point where I had to see her perform them live last year. It is always a welcomed perk to see that an artist sounds the same, if not better, in person!


She & Him

She & Him Consisting of M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel, She & Him is the band to look out for this summer. With M. Ward's expertise at playing guitar and Deschanel's soulful voice, it is no wonder that their summer tour has been doing so well. Recently seeing them perform an energetic 26-song set, I know from experience that this duo more than delivers!


Matt & Kim

Matt & Kim This duo hails from my hometown Brooklyn, a fact that caused my love for their music to expand. Musical genius bottled into the form of a man and woman, Matt & Kim dare to explore different genres; their upbeat songs show that they jump headfirst into their music-making process. Take a look at their unique sound in "Northeast" and "It's Alright." I may be biased, as Kim Schifino's drumming skills are superb and I am a total sucker for a great drummer!


Of Monsters and Men

Of Monsters and Men This group of talented artists consistently throws themselves into their music with abandon. I fell in love with the song "Little Talks" and the powerful lyrics behind it; it moved me to the point that I ended up co-choreographing my final dance piece to this song for my college's dance club with my best friend! With other notable tracks such as “Dirty Paws” and “King and Lionheart,” this is definitely one band that you will not regret investing jam sessions into!

Now that summer is out and your free time has multiplied, these awesome indie bands are definitely worth checking out! With the amount of success that each band has had in both national and international markets, it will be hard to choose which tunes to highlight on your summer playlist. Are there any other indie bands that you find more than worth listening to?
