Indie Songs are considered the national anthems for road trips. Whether it be for a small one or a long one, indie songs are your go to for a road trip.

So the next time you want to go on a road trip, put these 10 Indie songs on to intensify the experience.



1.) Serafyn- Go Down North


Are you going a hilly road in the night? With a romantic backdrop? This song may just be for you! With a sweet melodic sound to it with the title suggesting you are going somewhere! This song just shouts Roadtrip!


2. The Young Folk- Way Home



Oh my God! How does it get better than this Folk Indie number? Just imagine singing along to this song and dancing while sitting with your friends? Also while speeding down a highway surrounded by a desert maybe? Maybe you’re on your way home.


3. Freedom Fry- The Wilder Mile



Maybe this road trip is to forget something or someone. And maybe you’re speeding down the road while thinking about a million things at once and regretting half of them. Just listen to this song, sing along, and trust that this is not the end, and you know what they say, if it’s not perfect, well, it’s not the end.


4. Jeremy Loops- Skinny Loops


Look at the above caption and think the opposite of that. This song is for that.

5. Astronauts- Skydive


Maybe you’re trying to find meaning to your life or it’s the “college just ended” road trip or maybe it’s the “I need a mini vacation” road trip, this song will play serenely through it all, in the background.

6. American Authors- Luck

American Authors are known for their wonderfully articulated dance, happy songs. It’s about not apologizing and running away.
Okay maybe not really, but the sounds definitely makes us believe that.

7. Matt Simon- Catch & Release

Maybe just maybe you want to run away from everything for a few days, want an escape, this song is for you. Going on a road trip alone? That sounds like a dream!

8. Broken Bells- The High Road


Another perfect song for the night. The chorus builds up but never to the extent which makes feel like singing along to it. It makes you feel free and nostalgic at the same time, which really is the essence of a road trip, isn’t it?

9. Mumford And Sons- Hopeless Wanderer


Just read the title again. It does catch the true meaning of a road trip or life I guess. Hopefully you’re not hopeless or wandering but it does ignite within you the feeling that you might want to be a wanderer for even a few days.

10. Matt and Kim- Daylight

Probably one of the best songs by the duo, this songs talks about no matter what you’re going through or where you’re going, there’s always daylight to lead you home.


Next time planning for a road trip, these are the songs for you!
