The soundtrack to channel your existential contemplation for we all know that the state of questioning our existence is inevitable and the inherent meaning of life is never absolute. These could be the kind of tunes you contemplate to while stargazing, getting lost in time and space. The genres are varied ranging from shoegaze, dream pop, post-rock, folk, to experimental. Let’s get lost in our wretched existence then!
Dream pop is a sub-genre derived from a mix of alternative rock and neo-psychedelia that developed in the 1980s. It gives you a floating, dreamy sensation when you listen to the songs from this sub-genre – hence the name “dream pop”. 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!
