Okay so I am FUELLED by Jade's original thread and I feel like making a more positive one to counter it

What bands or artists do you feel are so evidently not driven by sales or success or any of that hullabaloo (do people still use this word? I'm bring it back)

The first one that comes to mind for me is PVRIS (shocker) but pretty much the main reason I love them so much is because if how artistic everything they do is. They have this whole aesethic and vibe that's been carried through from day one, everything is so visual like they have music videos for every single song on their debut album just so they can tell this continuous story, like the amount of effort that would have taken and they didn't need to do it! Plus if you listen to their lyrics you can tell Lynn writes because she wants to and uses it as an emotional outlet (as a lot of people do tbf) but that's what music should be about imo. Fall Out Boy too are one of the most artistically driven bands I've ever encountered tbh, they were known for being a bit weird, unconfinable to a specific genre or style - it's why they can pull of anything even nowadays. They just do what they want regardless of what they feel they should be doing, look at their song names for example or their merch lines even. Ofc Paramore too, they switch up their genre because it's what's coming to them naturally etc. I do think with the likes of their selftitled record, the genre change came out of necessity more than anything though because they'd lost one of their lead writers but they chose to run in this other direction and it's SO paid off, so again, a band that just goes with their own flow and makes the music they want to.

Sorry I could go on all day about this, it's bringing out the inner 2013 Paramore stan in me who used to run around youtube replying to anyone who said "new" Paramore is shit kink.gif

Lady Gaga I guess, she hit the big time with her super accessible The Fame pop bangers and knew the secret to $ucce$$, but this didn't stop her from taking experimental turns on subsequent records. She strikes me as someone who is devoted to her fans rather than caring about success in general now. Here we are with 'Joanne' which is worlds away from the likes of 'Just Dance' and 'Poker Face' and when listening to it, it feels so personal and carefree. I tip my hat to her for managing to pull it off.

I guess Muse could be a good shout here as they always strike me as a band that have never strayed too far from what made them (what defines selling out) you can always tell a song’s by them (with maybe a possible exception of the Twilight song) and while it’s got a lot more stadium friendly, the essence is still there and they’ve never chased trends.

TOVE LO tbh. She hit the big time with 'Stay High (Habits Remix)' just a few years ago but look where we are now, her music wouldn't be touched by radio with a bargepole laugh.gif

Yea, sure EH is her most commercial on the surface but it's such a strong concept album, it's still artistic af

I hate it. I really really loved The Family Jewels but everything since has been so poor in comparison.

For me an artist who hasn't really sold out is Carly Rae Jepsen. She has always kept to what she wants to make with a certain sound.

Paramore haven't sold out either they have just evolved as a band.

Marina, The Killers, Arctic Monkeys other mentions too. Ellie too even the others will disagree with me laugh.gif

Kelly Clarkson for the most part hasn't sold out, I think 'All I Ever Wanted' is her closest to doing so maybe.
