Indie Folk is a genre that is original and sound worthy for all music lovers, and it’s mostly relaxing and positive. Indie Folk songs are a great addition to every playlist, since they often transition very nicely and they’re so pleasurable to listen to. Indie Folk songs are also quite interesting to hear. They use so many different sounds, ranging from guitar and bass, the synth, and drums. These songs are unique in perspective and fresh in sound. The newer form of the genre makes use of jazzy sounds mixed with old country, while staying true to the all around folk sound. Indie Folk Songs seem to be a mix between Elliot Smith and the early Beatles, with a pop feeling but deep meaning.

The songs can be upbeat and friendly, sad and somber, or a pleasurable mix of the two exploring the gray space in between. The songs are a lovely addition to all iPod’s and can be used to just listen, or to make a hard day a little easier. When listening to this genre, you will discover its essence without it being spelled out, because it has to be experienced not always understood. Examples below…
