I love indie music, it’s my favourite genre; but what is it?
It used to be that Indie music was literally independent music. That is, bands who were not signed to a label – the band independently advertised and released music. There is an air of mystique around that. Listeners of indie seem to be those with their ear to the ground of some kind of mysterious underground scene. Today many ‘indie’ bands are actually signed and are doing well (I will refrain from name dropping).
Now it seems that Indie music is anything that isn’t made for the sole (and souless) purpose of selling records. Indie is music for music’s sake, performance for performance sake – Indie is art in a medium that now is growing in corporate monsterhood.
Support music, support Indie artists.
