What Exactly is Indie Music?

Originally, independent music, often referred to as indie music, is music produced independently from commercial record labels, a process that sometimes includes a “do it yourself” approach to recording and publishing. The term became associated with the music they produced and was initially used interchangeably with alternative rock. The term “indie rock” became associated with the bands and genres that remained dedicated to their independent status. Initially, the term “indie” was used for British-based music, while “alternative” was used for American, but over time the two have become fused together.
