5 Indie Bands to Look Out For in 2010
1. Sleigh Bells – Electronic Indie for fans of Amanda Blank, Peaches, and Passion Pit. I actually just listened to this band for the first time a few days ago, and they already amaze me.
2. Rogue Wave – After talking to another Indie DJ, we both mentioned how this recent add to the stacks has attracted our attention. For fans of Death Cab for Cutie, and to be honest, they sound a little like the old Foo Fighters (think “Big Me”).
3. The Press – Their new release ‘Inteotwijeoae’ (yeah, try saying that) is fantastic. Fans of Tokyo Police Club would probably enjoy them.
4. Seabear – We received some pretty upsetting news this year with Sigur Ros breaking up. But hey, here’s this awesome band from Iceland you can listen to to ease a bit of your sorrow. But really, this band is good. Mellow with haunting vocals.
5. White Hinterland – For fans of Beach House, a more mellow version of Black Moth Super Rainbow, and Florence and the Machine. More haunting female vocals with softer modern electronic beats to back them up.
