7 More Indie Artists You Should Be Listening to ...

By Vanessa

There's nothing I love more than listening to indie artists. I feel like these artists are more about doing their own thing, and just making people happy with their music. Am I the only one who gets anxiety about the fact that there is SO much music out there that goes undiscovered? I just want to be able to listen to it all! Check out my picks for the indie artists that you should be listening to right now. Of course, if you know about any other musicians, comment about them! I'd love to be able to check out their stuff.

1 MisterWives

I hadn't heard of this band until NYC's CMJ Music Marathon and I'm so glad I heard them that night! They covered a Drake song and sounded fantastic. I loved how they changed up the song and made it their own. They have such a cool vibe to them, and I'm excited to see how far they go with it. I definitely want to see them live again soon! They're just one of the amazing indie artists you should listen to!

2 Atlas Genius

I love this song! The lyrics are beautiful, and the melody is fun and upbeat. Atlas Genius is an awesome band! They've had a couple of shows around my area and I'm so disappointed that I've yet to see them live! I have heard that they put on a fantastic show. This is one of my favorite songs of theirs!

3 Young the Giant

Love this band and love this song. To be honest, I love everything about them. They have such a mellow vibe to them. They just radiate the love for music. You can tell they're just about doing what makes them happy, which in turn, makes their fans happy. P.S am I the only one who's reminded of New Girl's Nick Miller when they look at the lead singer?!

4 Hurts

The video is just a tad bit weird, but the song is fantastic. I came across this song just by a random click on YouTube and I'm so glad that I did! This band is awesome. All of their music is fantastic. If you haven't heard of them already, you should definitely check them out. You won't regret it!

5 Boy & Bear

I love this song! "Blood to Gold" has such a cool melody to it, and the lyrics are really interesting. This band makes great music and videos that go along with it. This was also just a random discovery for me, but like always, I'm very satisfied with it. They're an Australian indie-folk band, and I can't wait till they start getting some buzz here in the US. I'd definitely go to a show! What do you think about them?

6 Alt-j

This English indie-rock band is awesome. Their music is really cool and mellow. I'd love to see them perform live one day! I've downloaded a lot of their music recently.

7 The Kooks

I absolutely love The Kooks! This is a pretty old song, but it's still one of my favorites. They're still making new music though, which is awesome.

There you have it! These are just seven out of many indie artists you should listen to! If you know of any indie artists/bands that I should check out, comment about it. One of my favorite things to do is listen to new music! Who was your favorite on this list?
