Depends to some extent what you class as 'indie' but I'll go:

1 Vampire Weekend - Harmony Hall
2 The National - You Had Your Soul With You
3 Sam Fender - Play God (or Bon Iver - Naeem if that doesn't count since it wasn't actually originally released in 2019)

Disgustingly mainstream choices ik xx

edit: I forgot about the even more disgustingly mainstream 'Daddy' by Coldplay which would probably be either 1st or 2nd if it counts but I kind of hesitate to consider Coldplay to be an indie act these days anyway, although I'm not sure what other genre that song would count as.

In no particular order..

Caribou “Home”
The Comet Is Coming “Summon The Fire”
Ride “Future Love”

I would put Sampa The Great “Final Form” there if it was considered 'indie' enough.

My #1 of 'songs that were/would be posted in this forum' would quite easily be 'Death Stranding' by CHVRCHES but I really wouldn't consider that to be an indie song at all.

I guess it would come under the 'alternative' in the forum's name.

tbh what does indie even mean if not an intangible genre mostly applied to dudes with guitars, even those who sell millions of albums through major labels? There's always a weird tinge of elitism in it that feels like it should have died in the 2000s.

Anyway I will plump for some Aus baroque/art pop because if I don't, who will ~

Ainslie Wills - Mountains
Methyl Ethel - Trip The Mains
Olympia - Hounds

This! It’s always been present with indie music but literally anyone who plays venues more than 300 or gets a whiff of a hit is suddenly a mainstream outcast.

I know the term "indie" is outdated and mis-used, a bit like using urban,
but it's an easy way to identify what's in this forum

personally artists like Lewis Capaldi or Coldplay are just pop

I would argue Coldplay are indie/rock simply because the are a band who play instruments(now and again)!

That's not what makes them indie/rock. Maroon 5 play instruments and they wouldn't be classed as such other than their first album!

Clean Bandit are also a band who play instruments.

True I guess, I just always class them as this when adding the genres to my personal playlists.
