Reasons why we enjoy listening to indie pop music
Indie pop music is one of the most important forms of music. It originated in the United Kingdom in the 1980s. From that on it changed the face of music as we know it. The songs in this genre have an interesting rock tone, but also some pop music elements and a lot of feeling, thoughts and deep meanings.
I personally love indie pop music because it is free of all the modern world stuff and almost everyone can relate to it. It is not only sad or happy or danceable, but is all of that at the same time. You can really relax while listening to it and both the sound and the lyrics can make you relive a certain part of your life.
One of the best indie pop music artists are for sure the ones from the group Belle and Sebastian. They were formed in Glasgow and are a Scottish indie pop group. They have 9 albums to this date and are often praised by the critics but had only mediocre commercial success. MGMT are also pretty good, as well as the famous singer Lykke Li. Lykke is a Swedish singer, songwriter and model. She had also only mediocre commercial success, but I love all of her three albums. Youth Novels from 2008, Wounded Rhymes from 2011 and the best one, for my taste, I Never Learn from 2014.
Florence and the Machine is also a pretty good indie rock band that has 3 albums and good commercial success in the past. Camera Obscura and Allo Darlin' are also two groups of the modern indie pop music age. Allo Darlin' is from London and they have an amazing indie album. It came out in autumn 2014 and is called We Come from the Same Place. You have to listen to it, it has really wonderful songs.
