Inside a Style Inside Indie Rock

Learn how to produce your own indie rock track through step-by-step tasks accompanied by video demonstrations.

  • Start by understanding the genre with an introduction that explores the features and shows examples of the style. Then, download the loops folder and head to BandLab.
  • Follow the video guide and use the text instructions to build the foundation of your track using drum loops.
  • Next, we focus on the remaining instruments, including guitar, bass and keyboards. Mix and match various audio samples to create your own instrumental. If you want to take things further, replace instrument parts with your own recordings or use software instruments to add to what you’ve already got.
  • In the final task we look at the vocals. Here you can write your own lyrics and record your own vocals, or use the vocal loops provided to top line your instrumental and complete your song.
