Foundations of Dream Pop 101

By: Dinda Az’ara Putri |

Dream pop is a sub-genre derived from a mix of alternative rock and neo-psychedelia that developed in the 1980s. The thing about this sub-genre is that it gives you a floating, dreamy sensation when you listen to the songs from this sub-genre – hence the name “dream pop”. Dream pop preoccupies its listeners with a certain kind of sonic texture and melodic atmosphere. Contributor Dinda Aza’Ara Putri has compiled a starter dream pop playlist for those who are interested in diving more into the dream pop world. Enjoy!
