We’re wondering: What will be the next indie trend from the past that will be big right now? Our immediate thought was chillwave, just because it’s been about a decade since it was the trendy form of indie. And there were probably a lot of 13 and 14-year-olds back then who loved Neon Indian and Washed Out who are now putting out their own records. […] How about the art-folk sound of the late ’00s associated with Grizzly Bear, Bon Iver, and (kind of) Animal Collective? Again, it’s been over a decade since that stuff was really in vogue, so it’s ripe for rediscovery by a new generation (or a nostalgic revisiting by aging millennials).
