The Contenders: Page 12
The best band I've ever seen live - absolutely amazing
Best live band ever. California Daze best song ever!
Happy people is such a good album its not even real
amazing, no wordsV 1 Comment
Chuck Criss the vocalist has a completely different style to his brother (Darren). Sort of like miniature tigers. They are quite electronic but I would still call them Indie. Try Hannah for some beautiful quick lyrics that fit perfectly, or Aelous <--- my favourite song of all time.
Many haven't heard of this band. It's the brainchild of Eric Bachmann who is also the frontman of this band. Liz durrett is also a band member. Great tunes. If you want to give them a try, listen to "Breaks In The Armor"
Come on GUYS! You'll forget about all those indie bands once you hear company of thieves! They were the reason I got into indie in the first place! Please give some of your time to listen to them.
Besides their fascinating and eccentrically awesome music videos, this band makes me feel that good music always exists.
Zooey Deschanel's voice is so amazing. Listening to her songs just makes you happy!V 1 Comment
They're a rather new band but they sound great and pure.
Just listen to anyone of their songs and you will know why they should be on this list
Can't believe this isn't higher on the list. Guess they're debut album, Days Are Gone has only released recently meaning they've only just started to become known. The vocalists are triplets and there songs are feel-good, great beat, amazing lyrics, dance too, pop your head on ipod. One peice of evidence of how good they are is that they're song 'The Wire' was number 13 on triple J's hottest 100 for 2013: you need to be a least good to get on too the list, and triple j is known to have great taste and good indie bands
Give them a go.
Danielle (24, guitar, lead vocals)
Este (27, bass, harmonies, occasional lead vocal)
Alana (21, keyboards, harmonies, occasional lead vocal)
The Grandmothers of "indie" and post-punk from the 60's. If you don't like their music, you don't know anything about what indie really means.
They are the best band ever. Listen to them
The Format is one of the best indie rock bands, and should definitely be higher on this list. The Format doesn't get as much attention as they deserve, and that's a shame because their last album "Dog Problems" is a really great album. Nate Ruess and Sam Means really write some great songs together. I'd recommend you listen to I'm Actual, Dog Problems (the song), Snails, Inches and Falling, Time Bomb, and The First Single. Once you listen to those songs, you'll want to vote The Format up!
