Young Warriors Best 5 Indy Bands to Break Mainstream

May 30, 2018

 

1) ARCADE FIRE

Arcade Fire’s 2004 debut Funeral immediately catapulted them into the spotlight. With massive buzz online, praise from likes of David Bowie, and an incredible and ambitious record behind it all, they made an instant impact on the consciousness of indie fans worldwide.

 

2) THE STROKES

The Strokes massive single “Last Night” immediately captured the DIY ethos of early NYC indie reminiscent of The Velvet Underground. Oozing a casual swagger with riffs for days, the Strokes were too cool for school and backed it up with great music.

 

3) ARCTIC MONKEYS

The UK’s answer to The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys infused the indie sound with Brit pop to great effect. The songs spoke volumes and Alex Turner’s boyish looks belied his bad-ass persona that is evident in many of their songs.

 

4) THE HIVES

Sweden’s answer to The Strokes (not really) The Hives had great music, a great look, and perfectly captured the hook-laden garage sound that was massive in the early 2000s. The 2000 record Veni Vidi Vicious was an indie hit across the world

 

5) DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE

With major placements in shows such as The OC, Death Cab’s music was introduced to a generation of youth. Many gravitated towards Ben Gibbard’s sensitive song-writing and would never let go, which explains the why the band still has massive appeal to this day.
