8 Fun. Fun. Fun is an American indie pop band based in New York City. It was formed by Nate Ruess, former lead singer of The Format, with Andrew Dost of Anathallo and Jack Antonoff of Steel Train.

They are influenced by Queen. They have some potential

9 The Arcana

This is my favourite band. I've been following them from the beginning of 2017.

The Arcana are awesome. Lemon Freddy Phantom Of The Sky is a god-like album.

The Arcana is definitely one of the best bands the UK has produced for sometime.

10 Passenger Passenger Michael David Rosenberg, better known by his stage name Passenger, is an English singer-songwriter and musician.

Not really a band. Mike Rosenberg had a band called "Passenger". But he's more famous for his solo career. - zxm

The Contenders

11 Bastille Bastille Bastille are an English indie pop band formed in 2010. The group began as a solo project by singer Dan Smith, who later decided to form a band. Beside Smith, the four-piece consists of Chris Wood, Will Farquarson, and Kyle Simmons.

Yes. They should be 1.

They are purely awesome..their music is just beautiful...just listen to their album bad blood...its awesome

12 Kenickie

This band is pretty good but its not the best

13 Of Monsters and Men Of Monsters and Men Of Monsters and Men is a five-member, English-language, indie folk-pop band from Reykjavík, Iceland, formed in 2010.

I've loved of monsters and men since 2012, so for 3 years I've loved them. I saw them in concert and cried because I've wanted to see them for so long. by the way, they're really good live!
