Not Mika, Hurts, Sia, Ellie Goulding and LDL that's for sure.

I love Niki and the Dove. Sounds like slutty Danish MA candidates :sobbing:

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. :shrug:

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

Lykke's both albums are amazing. Melodies & Desires, Let it Fall, I'm good I'm gone I mean every single song of them is worth listening.
Oh Land is another artist I would recommend, she has one album so far and its quite great. Songs I particularly like of hers Human, Rainbow, Wolf & I.
