Talking Heads are my favorite band of all time but not quite what I am looking for. I'm definitely not looking for 80s pop one hit wonder stuff like the Buggles or Thomas Dolby (although I like that stuff), but GBV and Echo and the Bunnymen are on the right track and will probably help me narrow this down a bit more, so thank you!


Not quite as light or dreamy (?) as I am looking for although "Way Out" is close, so thanks to you too

Cocteau Twins may be what you're after:

The Bats are top notch jangly 80s indie pop, although I'm only familiar with their debut album. I really should check out more of their stuff.

that NME C86 comp is the most archetypal example of 80s jangle I can think of:

(I heard "Inside Out" by the Mighty Lemon Drops the other day and loved it and wanted to listen to more stuff that sounds like that)

c86 is a good starting place but also black tambourine, unrest, the clean, go-betweens, television personalities, the wake, felt, 14 iced bears, another sunny day, the sea urchins, tallulah gosh. basically everything on creation, sarah, and slumberland

Looking for current female-fronted rock groups who combine a punk/grunge/garage rock edge with pop songwriting. Power chords, attitude, and catchy hooks, yes please. The bass being prominent in the mix is a plus. Some bands along these lines that I like, to varying degrees, include Cherry Glazerr, Cayetana, All Dogs, Chumped, Katie Ellen, Camp Cope, Chastity Belt, Diet Cig, Jabber, Daddy Issues, Sheer Mag, Waxahatchee, Snail Mail, and Bleached

Examples:

Hinds is more garage rock. (This one sounds cleaner, but softer). They're also incredibly nice and a loving great live show.

Whoah, I didn't know there was a whole other band on the P.s. Eliot / Waxahatchee Crutchfield Continuum. Thanks!

That Tsunami Bomb song is rad as hell too, wish their whole catalog sounded a little more like that.

Holy poo poo. Goths by The Mountain Goats is really good. Definitely worth a listen if nothing else.

can i get some recommendations for ebm/electro-industrial? i like neon judgement, front 242, crash course in science, dance-era cabaret voltaire, fad gadget, and lots of stuff on minimal wave.

the closer it is to like ectomorph / drexciya style electro the better e.g. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OoJd6to1T7U

You should pop into the Electro-Industrial thread for some recommendations in the first few pages, and it's an active thread, so you'd get some extensive answers if you ask. I'm sure they could use a break from discussing which era of KMFDM is the best.
