Indie Music is So 80s: Part 3

So a little over three years ago I wrote a post detailing how I thought “indie” music was becoming very synth heavy and coming to resemble the musical aesthetic of the 1980s. In that post (written in October 2012) I joked that maybe Taylor Swift would start using a synth! I’m not claiming to be prophetic, but this is clearly a trend. Then a year after that I wrote “Part 2” where I included links to some synth heavy indie bands I was enjoying at that time. Well it’s been two years since so I thought I would do a Part 3! Below are bands/songs that I’ve discovered in the past two years that stay true to their 80s/hipster aesthetic:
