Indie music has quickly become a dominant music genre since the term was coined in the mid-1980s. What began as a subculture of sound that wanted to separate itself from mainstream rock indie music’s do-it-yourself approach to producing music has amassed a large following of fans and grown into a successful format that truly stands on its own.
It’s difficult to define or classify the precise sound of indie music since it has so many sub-categories. One common trait that it seems to share are the names of indie music bands with depressing group names. Despite their somber monikers these indie music ensembles actually write songs that skew happier than you might expect.
