Twee pop

Twee pop is a type of indie rock that is known for simple, sweet melodies, jangling guitars and lyrics. The genre began in 1986, when New Musical Express released C-86[?], a compilation of bands including the Pastels[?] and Primal Scream; C-86 became an entire genre that soon gave way to twee pop (see 1986 in music).

In the United Kingdom, where twee pop was most popular, Sarah Records[?] was home to most of the bands in the field, including Heavenly and the Orchids. In the United States, K Records[?] (out of Olympia, Washington) and was headed by the band Beat Happening.
