Traditionally, indie music has been celebrated for reasons other than pure catchiness. Sure, there have always been catchy indie songs, and that's always a draw for some people, but there's also a stigma attached with huge hooks and songs so immediate that you're singing along by the end of the first chorus. Lately, though, it seems like indie pop is having something of a moment. Embracing massive hooks and addictive melodies, indie artists (whether "indie" in relation to their style or label situation) are figuring out how to use production, style, and delivery to make even the most instantly gratifying songs interesting enough to maintain indie credibility and staying power.

We're not complaining. Here are some of the catchiest indie songs in current rotation.

    A lot of these aren’t what I would call conventionally “catchy”. But, to each his own! Personally, I find MVSCLES “Sweet n Sour” to be one of the catchiest damn songs I’ve heard in forever. Anything by Miniature Tigers gets caught in my head for days. I also spent the better part of two weeks with “Red the Homeless Beatboxer’s” songs “This is All I Love” and “I Should Tell Your Momma On You” firmly planted in my brain.

    Yeah “Sweet n Sour” is awesome. And yeah, we use the term “catchy” loosely to mean any song that gets stuck in our heads. Basically, just an excuse to post a bunch of songs that we really like right now haha. Gotta check out the others you mentioned.
