Point between indie rock

Indie music artists list

This indie pop bands list ranks the best indie pop groups and musicians by votes. This list of top indie pop artists let’s you see who indie fans think are the best singers, musicians, and artists in indie pop. Though indie pop bands first emerged in the 1980s (primarily in the UK and Scotland in particular) the 2000s saw them become more mainstream. It's roots are in post-punk and alternative rock, but indie pop artists can encompass a slew of different genres including indie folk, synth pop, and electro pop. No matter what your definition of indie pop is, these indie pop bands are among the best in the genre and have managed to influence new indie pop bands that have managed to become hugely popular without the help of mainstream record labels and radio airplay.

So, what are the best indie pop bands? For starters, any list of indie pop bands has to include the likes of Two Door Cinema Club, Vampire Weekend, Passion Pit, Phoenix, MGMT, and Arcade Fire. The classic songs and albums released by these acts had a huge part in on shaping indie pop today and there's a good reason they're considered the top indie artists. These groups sell out headlining tours, are top billing at festivals, and are without a doubt the most recognizable indie pop bands out there today.

That said, it's up to you to determine who are the best indie pop bands. If you notice that an indie pop artist isn't on this list, feel free to add them. This list answers the questions "who are the best indie pop bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest indie pop musician ever?" If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of what groups are most popular. After all, this list is about independent, non-mainstream acts.
