Dream pop

Dream Pop or Dreampop (take your pick) is a genre of music where timbre and texture are as important, if not more so, than melody and song structure. Vocals when present are subsumed within the music and act as another texture or instrument. For example guitarists in Dream Pop played with feedback and effects to blur and mutate notes, to produce pure iridescent noise, not memorable melodies and toe-tapping tunes, although these were present they weren’t the focus.
