    So Jealous was my first Indie Pop Album it involved from Kate Nash and Lilly Allen to OK Go & Foster The People im very impressed. And of course Indie Pop is a genre. Those are Pop Musicians who use the style or attitude of Indie Rock. Both Kate and Lilly made a cover of a british Indie Rock Band so they were pioneers of this genre. Then there was Vampire Weekend, Two Door Cinema Club which resulted in other Styles of Indie Pop: MGMT Mentioning and Foster The People. OK Go is also Indie Pop, cause they started to turn to it. But Lykke Li and Lorde don't count as that since their music has nothing to do with the Indie Rock Wave at all. there more biters of Bat For Lashes style. And Bat For Lashes was influenced mostly by Kate Bush and Stuff from Regina Spektor. On the other Hand 1st Florence + The Machine Album totally indie Pop [Kiss With A Fist] and Ida Maria those are really indie pop influenced. tag stuff like Zola Jesus and Lyyke Li as darkarts this sounds like an awesome tag.
