Best British Indie Bands

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Bombay Bicycle Club

These guys are the best band I have heard in a long time. Not only do they bring something new to the world with their eclectic sounds and awesome guitar music, they are also some of the most humble guys on the scene. These men are truly one of the best out there now, and Jack Steadman is one heck of a genius. They are all marvelous at what they do, and not one of their songs has disappointed me!

I love your songs guys, its make my mind traveling everywhere

Great band with loads of energy live. Deep talent.

62 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

63 Pigeon Detectives

I think that I found out is the bet song ever because whether you're a boy or a girl you can sing along an really understand the lyrics. It has helped me through some tough times with crushes, and I hope it's helped others too x

64 Shed Seven

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

65 Blood Red Shoes
66 Catfish & The Bottlemen

These guys are absolutely amazing, my current obsession. Best lyrics and all together perfect songs. Cannot fault a song from The Balcony.

How are they not in the top 10, let alone the top 100...

The ride and balcony is really good

Not a bad song on The ride or balcony

The Rifles are awesome! If you've never heard any of their stuff then start listening to them now.

Lyrics, Music, everything. Pete's a genius.

Because of Pete Doherty. Down In Albion and Shotter's Nation are fantastic albums.

69 Cage the Elephant

Cage the elephant 70th?! Are you kidding?! Their music is the definition of indie. I'm baffled
