Recently Coldplay’s X&Y album dropped. Its just weird seeing and hearing more about this music genre they call “Indie”. So yah, so far I can only distinguish this style of music if the band is from the UK. Its prolly because I only know two bands that for sure are categorized in this genre, Coldplay and Kasabian.
Speaking of Kasabian—these blokes rock rat-ass! Straight from the first track (club foot, my fav) of their self-entitled album, they set a great momentum that just takes you by surprise; and make you not want to get off of it. But hey, you dont have to take my word for it. I seriously recommend copping their album.
English indie band Kasabian has made a splash in the international press with a bold mix of raw guitar sound, classic rock progressions, catchy vocal lines and electronic beats. This stripped-down acoustic set showcases their pop-friendly vocal harmonies and their unpolished yet strong melodies, sung from the heart. ~M. Myers, KEXP
