How to

How can I make my "heavy" hard rock dissonant toadies/qotsa sounding song sound more indie? Kinda like kings of leon, arctic monkeys, manchester orchestra etc. indie but "heavy." turn the gain down?

try the lydian b7 when the parameters of x are within (-infinity, 2] and the dorian submixo scale when (2, infinity)

Study the arrangements of the artists you want to emulate. Then emulate.

write indie music then tune down like 3 steps

it'll sound sludgy without all the gain, that's how homme's always done it

I- bVI-IV progression as a back drop/bridge/ breakdown for your indie chorus/verse or make the chorus heavy. blend grunge elements into the indie.
