Indie Pop: Need some songs recommendation

Anyone know of any good indie pop songs that they'd like to share? These are the kind of songs I'm into:

Lykke Li - I Follow Rivers
Sia - Soon We'll Be Found, Lullaby, Breathe Me, I'm In Here, I Go To Sleep
Lana Del Rey - Born To Die, Summertime Sadness, Radio, Blue Jeans
Hurts - Wonderful Life, Illuminated, Stay
Mika - Rain

Re: Indie Pop: Need some songs recommendation

Some people off the top of my head with recent releases -

Haim
MS MR
Lisa Mitchell
Gypsy and the Cat
Ball Park Music
Bertie Blackman
First Aid Kit
Clare Bowditch
San Cisco
Jinja Safari

Sometimes there is a fine line between indie rock/pop so I just mentioned the ones that were more poppish

but you know, الحاجّ مالك is right: even in a world where indie has become nothing but a selling tag, calling mika, hurts or lana del rey indie seems a litttle ... odd. not that it matters, mind you.

Well, they were before they crossed over. Look at the Billboard records and their past albums.

But indie pop is more of a genre connotation than how it should be used. Alternative pop is more appropriate.
