Dream pop

Dream pop is a type of alternative rock that originated in the early 1980s when bands like the Cocteau Twins began twisting New Wave melodies into sonic, echoing textures and mumbled vocals. In the late 1980s, several varieties of dream pop emerged, primarily in Britain. These included shoegazing, space rock, Britpop and twee pop.
