Need to know the best Indie band music playlist? There are many great Indie bands out there that deserve recognition, but aren't very popular due to their unique sounding music. Making playlists is a great way to make them better known. Since playlists are always created by fans themselves, we're going to list a few songs from Indie bandsthat would go very well in a playlist.
- "Munich" - Editors. Editors are a unique sounding Indie rock band. Munich is their most popular song. The song starts out with a nice sounding guitar part. A guitar part that doesn't sound like a common electric guitar. After about 25 seconds of the intro, the singing takes place. Overall, the entire song sounds Indie because it sounds like no type of other rock song.
- "Shelter Two" - The Evens. The Evens are a two man band like El Ten Eleven, however nowhere near as popular as them. Shelter Two is their best known song. This song is a very good and simple song because there are only two instruments used, which are the guitar and the drums. This song itself sounds very soft rock like, however you can hear some Indie-ness within the song itself.
- "I Like Van Halen Because My Sister Say's They Are Cool" - El Ten Eleven. More commonly referred to "I Like Van Halen," this song is one their more recent songs. This song has a fast tempo while maintaining a good beat and a unique sound. Unlike "Indian Winter," which was played on a double necked guitar, a bass and electric, "I Like Van Halen" was played on a single bass guitar while making unworldly bass guitar sounds. The song starts out with an interesting intro while fading out with a heavy bass part.
- "Somebody Told Me" - The Killers. While The Killer may seem like a post-rock kind of band, some of their songs are considered Indie. "Somebody Told Me" is sometimes considered to be Indie because of their use of a synthesizer in it as well as unique usage of the guitar. Throughout the song, the synthesizer is playing a few notes that sustain. The guitar part is also unique because during the verses, actual notes aren't played. The guitar tone actually doesn't sound much like other common guitar tones and sounds. It sounds more electric, quieter, and subtle compared to other songs with guitar parts in them.
- "Milk Crysis" - The Go! Team. While this song may not be the best song for a playlist, it certainly is an interesting song. While there isn't much actual singing in the song, the instruments and style of playing are we catches our attention. While there are common instruments, such as guitars, used for the song, you can't actually hear much of them. Instead, you hear lots of synthesized music and the drums mainly. Listen hard and you'll be able to distinguish between all the instruments.
