    Not especially the sort that

    for some reason is called "indie" now - The Kooks ! Neutral Milk Hotel! I mean the stuff like Jesus & Mary Chain, The Smiths, The Fall, My Bloody Valentine. Now that's indie.

    I've listened to kodaline

    for years, before they became more known. Their music has a way of sending me back to every memory I've had with a certain someone. Good and bad memories. It's so beautiful to be able to be transported mentally like that because of a single sentence in a beautiful song.

    If any of you guys dig 80's music you should

    check out Paperwhite. They have this classic 80's beat especially their song "Take Me Back". It's soooo good and hypnotic I've been hooked on it for weeks now. :) https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=7qpaxq4B87U

    that's what I love about it.. it doesn't has to be something special.. it simply is.. It's not like punk or something.. if you're a punk you "have" to wear special clothes... But you can simply be indie.. It's just soo unconventional.. I love it I love so many bands...
