"Dream pop" is a genre of music that originated in the 1980s and is characterized by its ethereal and atmospheric sound, often featuring hazy vocals, shimmering guitars, and lush synthesizers. Dream pop is known for its dreamy and introspective quality, often evoking feelings of nostalgia, melancholy, or romance.

Dream pop often features a combination of different musical elements, such as shoegaze, indie rock, and post-punk. The music tends to be slower and more ambient than traditional pop music, with an emphasis on creating a dreamy and otherworldly soundscape.

Lyrically, dream pop often explores themes of introspection, nostalgia, and existentialism. The lyrics are often poetic and impressionistic, creating a dream-like atmosphere that complements the music.

Some of the most influential dream pop bands include Cocteau Twins, My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive, and Mazzy Star. These bands are known for their use of layered guitar effects, reverb, and ethereal vocals.

Today, dream pop remains a popular genre of music, with new artists and bands continuing to explore the genre and push its boundaries. Dream pop has also influenced other genres of music, such as indie rock, shoegaze, and electronic music. It is often played on college and independent radio stations that specialize in alternative and indie music.
