Nice idea! Are we going specifically indie or indie, rock, alternative?

Haha just read through the other 'top 3 indie songs of the year' thread and looks like everyone has their own interpretation of what 'indie' is! It is really such an umbrella term like 'urban' isn't it, in 2019.

Will have a proper think about this. I know my 2010 and 2019 albums for sure though.

This is difficult

2010 - Beach House - Teen Dream (The National super close too)
2011 - Trial Kennedy - Living Undesigned
2012 - Silversun Pickups - Neck Of The Woods
2013 - Still Corners - Strange Pleasures
2014 - The DÝ - Shake, Shook, Shaken
2015 - Unknown Mortal Orchestra - Multi-Love (but I also kind of want to give it to the UNDERTALE soundtrack which is so indie by definition and just loaded with banger after banger)
2016 - Cymbals Eat Guitars - Pretty Years
2017 - Wolf Alice - Visions Of A Life
2018 - Camp Cope - How To Socialise & Make Friends (shout out to Mitski as well)
2019 - FKA twigs - MAGDALENE (I've heard so little from this year but by no means a weak pick)

Highlight track: "Just Tonight"
(Other notable albums from: Two Door Cinema Club, Kings of Leon)

2011 - Gotye "Making Mirrors"
Highlight track: "Somebody That I Used To Know"
(Other notable albums from: blink-182)

2012 - alt-J "An Awesome Wave"
Highlight track: "Matilda"
(Other notable albums from: Jessie Ware, fun., Michael Kiwanuka, The Lumineers)

2013 - Arctic Monkeys "AM"
Highlight track: "Do I Wanna Know"
(Other notable albums from: Fall Out Boy, Capital Cities, Imagine Dragons, Bastille, CHVRCHES, The 1975)

2014 - Damien Rice "My Favourite Faded Fantasy"
Highlight track: "It Takes A Lot To Know A Man"
(Other notable albums from: alt-J, Vance Joy, The Kooks, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Paolo Nutini, Bombay Bicycle Club, Jessie Ware, Coldplay)

2015 - Jamie xx "In Colour"
Highlight track: "Gosh"
(Other notable albums from: Fall Out Boy, Mumford & Sons, Years & Years, Sufjan Stevens)

2016 - The Lumineers "Cleopatra"
Highlight track: "Ophelia"
(Other notable albums from: The 1975, Michael Kiwanuka, Christine and the Queens, Bon Iver)

2017 - Linkin Park "One More Light"
Highlight track: "Heavy"
(Other notable albums from: Imagine Dragons, The xx, Portugal. The Man)

2018 - Razorlight "Olympus Sleeping"
Highlight track: "Carry Yourself"
(Other notable albums from: Arctic Monkeys, James Bay, The Kooks, The 1975, Capital Cities, Christine and the Queens)

2019 - Foals "Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part 1"
Highlight track: "Exits"
(Other notable albums from: Bon Iver, FKA twigs, Michael Kiwanuka, Sam Fender, blink-182, Cigarettes After Sex, Foals, The Lumineers)

2011 was the hardest. My album of the year (and decade) was Chase & Status "No More Idols" and other than Adele "21" nothing else came close but I did enjoy the Gotye one having discovered him when he hit number 1 in Australia. On the pop front I also loved "Blue Neighbourhood" by Troye Sivan, "1989" by Taylor Swift, "Teenage Dream" by Katy Perry and "Joanne" by Lady Gaga a lot.

Yes they were proper back on form for their comeback! It was all a bit of a coincidence for me, earlier in the year I'd been revisiting all their singles and listened to them a lot wishing they'd come back with something new, and then suddenly it happened, it was the right time for me!
