SOUNDS OF SUMMER / PICK YOUR STYLE, ENJOY THE TASTE
Indie Pop originated in Britain in the late 70´s. The word “Indie” (short for independent) made reference to the music produced independently from the mainstream record companies. Nowadays there is a good number of bands labelled as Indie, but promoted commerce-oriented record labels.
Indie Rock is an alternative rock style originated in United Kingdom and United States in the eighties. As in Indie Pop, the name is associated to the way of producing the records. Today, Indie Rock bands enjoy great popularity. Somehow, the word Indie might have lost the essence and value it had on its beginnings.
