What is Indie Rock? A Primer.

Learn more about the trendy music genre.

Indie rock is a genre of rock music that originated in the United States and the United Kingdom in the 1980s. The term is often used to describe the means of production and distribution of independent underground music, as well as the style of music that was first associated with this means of production.


Obscure Band You've Never

Indie music artists are known for placing a premium on maintaining complete control of their music and careers, releasing albums on independent record labels (sometimes self-owned and operated) and relying on touring, word-of-mouth, airplay on independent or college radio stations and, in recent years, the Internet for promotion. Nowadays though there are many examples of indie musicians switching to major labels mid-career. This blurs the lines between indie and mainstream music and is often the subject of debate amongst fans. Bands that have spent most of their careers on major labels are still occasionally referred to by the press as indie rock because of their sound or aesthetic.

      I love Indie music. There are so many unique bands just waiting to be discovered when you turn off the pop and listen to more obscure music. Why not listen to some music by The Strokes?

      I know that Soundpool is quite an awesome band. I guess they are not so much of classic rock, but indie and alternative.
