A child who follows what they are told through the 3 divine indie mandates, NME, The mighty boosh and Radio 1.
Generally dressed in awful clothes that are too thing, short or smell like piss. Love to go to concerts where everyband name begins with the word "the" whilst telling everyone else there that "I knew who they were before you ALLL".
A step above scene but a step below chav, however indie kids will have characteristics of both social groups such as stupid fringes and inability to interact with other normal people.
Most likely spotted at a kings of leon concert giving devil horns and saying "omg this is the best shit ever, I wish I could play that bland 2 chord song on my guitar". Whilst us normal kids are pounding your girlfriend and getting her pregnant.
Most likely to insult metal, rap or rock and roll but have no valid reasons as to why it's bad.. generally listen to dull 2 chord songs which all revolve lyrically about being in love with someone who doesn't love you anymore because you took too long to tell them about your love and they are now in a relationship with someone else, most likely your best friend... the girl will be called something stupid like "rose" or "ruby".
Indie kid: You like shit music, I love the Arctic monkeys because nobody has heard of them
Normal: Never of heard of them probably because they're shit?
Indie kid: NOOOOO YOU DON'T GET IT

Indie kids: Arctic monkeys are shit, everyone likes them now.
Mainly teenagers who all share a common love for the arts and music. They listen to many bands most people haven't heard of and tend to dress however they want, usually ruling out the rules of fashion. One may see these "indie kids" in a local coffee shop, art gallery, or thrift store. These people aren't "emo". They also tend to wear warm neutral tones as opposed to black. They are fairly reserved and tend to be open minded as well as opinionated.
here are some examples of what indie kids look like and listen to:
The Teens who aren't mainstream, listen to Indie and Alternative music, no defining clothing or style, can be anyone and look like anything. Ranging from hippies to social outcasts. Most people have a very narrow-minded veiw on Indie Kids because they don't necesserily like their music so they tend to make generalised and insulting comments about their clothing and what they do.
"Dude, is that guy listening to Faker?" "Yeah, he must be one of those Indie Kids"
Nerds but hot.
Indie kids are the new generation of nerd. They're the "cool nerd" cos they embrace the awkwardness.
Someone independent in their thinking as to the eccentric perception of life in all ways. An outstanding person, set apart into it's own, defining it without conformity, but with it's own origination.
People usually associate Indie Kids with Hipsters and Scene Kids, but they're pretty different.
