Best British Indie Bands

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Keane Keane Keane are an English rock band from Battle, East Sussex, formed in 1995. The group currently comprises Tim Rice-Oxley, Richard Hughes, Jesse Quin and Tom Chaplin.

Album 1 and 2 are Pure Keane Genius, the best of their work but I think even hey will admit that the newer direction for inspiration took them down the pan, ran out of ideas and playing in a new way changed their sound, only Keane fans kept listening. a real shame but the should be higher on the list!

This is the best "feel good " indie band!

63 Shed Seven

One of the most underrated bands of the indie boom era. Chasing Rainbows is one of my favourite songs.

64 Interpol

They are from New York, not British

65 Daughter

Daughter is sooo amazing! I can't believe is this low on this list. There's just so much feelings and emotions on their lyrics. It's one of my favourite bands. If you never heard them you should do your self a favor and cry your heart out listening to her wonderful voice.

They brought theme and stories in every unique sound in their album, it's soft but burn you Inside

66 Blood Red Shoes
67 The Rifles

68 Cage the Elephant
