10 Indie Music Artists Who Deserve More Love

Indie music has been a staple of British culture since its meteoric rise in popularity in the 1990s, with Britpop bands like Oasis and Blur spearheading the genre.

However, many bands and artists around the world are emerging more and more, with fresh new sounds and they have started to gain traction here in the UK. While there has certainly been an indie scene elsewhere for a long time, it’s more popular than it’s ever been.

Nonetheless, many bands are flying under the popularity radar for whatever reason, yet they deliver a slew of incredible tracks that rival the giants of the genre now. This list is going to highlight indie bands that deserve more love and would be right at home on any fan’s playlist.

Whether the influence comes from yesteryear, the 1980s resurgence, or an all-original execution, these are 10 indie bands and artists who deserve more love and attention.

Who knows? You might find your new favorite track!

Will Joseph Cook is known for his pop melodies and poetic lyrics. When these two facets combine with her infectious vocals and smooth acoustic sounds, you have the makings of a star.

Although it has had top spots at festivals across the country, it has yet to break through the barrier to rise to the forefront of the genre.

Influenced by the likes of Nick Cave, the folk and blues roots really make Cook stand out among his peers.

“Take Me Dancing” is the track that really demonstrates its beautiful lyricism, and the accompanying video really fits the theme of finding fantasy and joy while the mundanity of life surrounds us. A perfect song for the summer, optimistic, but relaxing. His other songs are also perfect for any feel-good playlist.
