Dream Pop

Originally from Britain, this Alternative Rock type of music became popular in the 80’s. The essence of the music is a focus on ethereal textures and moods, rather than on propulsive rock riffs. Breathy, high-register female vocals or almost whispered male vocals are usually the means of lyrical delivery; lyrics are generally introspective and existential in nature. The music is meant to set a mood and the vocals are more of a background to the music.
