What musical genre is this band?

That's a question frequently asked. I heard many different opinions, but none expert.

Some said new wave, others said funk pop. Other say "indie", but indie is too general. It may mean anything. Indie is a legal state, not a style of music.

The band's name is Siamés. Here is a list of his most known hits.

    It's entirely possible for a band to be new wave, funk pop, and indie at the same time. Or maybe at different times, on different songs - because as you rightly point out in your question, different genre labels focus on different aspects of the band or music. – topo Reinstate Monica May 20 at 0:47
  • @topo Reinstate Monica Ok, but what genre are the songs of that band? Let's say "the wolf", or "as you get high" – tutizeri May 20 at 1:15

    There are rock elements and there are synth pop elements, so I'd personally just say something very general like "alternative rock" or "pop rock". But other people might have other opinions - there's no definitive answer... – topo Reinstate Monica May 20 at 6:58

"Alternative" or "indie" is my best guess. However, I don't listen to them, so I may not be the best expert. However, after doing some research, it seems that they fall under those two genres.

  • Indie is not a genre. It just means independent. Independent of a music seal. – tutizeri May 21 at 8:32
