Labour leader Ed Miliband seemed to stress his indie credentials as he addressed his party today (September 28) in Manchester.

Speaking at the organisation's annual conference for the first time since his election as leader at the weekend, the MP turned heads with his choice of music before and after his speech.

Miliband took to the stage to Vampire Weekend's 'A-Punk', before delivering a speech outlining his plans for the party.

Then, to the surprise of some, the Labour leader left the stage at the end of his address to Kings Of Leon's 'Use Somebody'.

Miliband has since suggested he did not pick the music.
