Dream pop is a genre that grew out of alternative rock and neo-psychedelia in the 1980s. Music in this sub-genre is often focused on building texture and atmosphere as much as melody.

The term was first used by Alex Ayuli to describe the music made by his band A.R. Kane. Dream pop crosses over with the shoegaze scene, which developed in the UK in the 1980s. Dream pop and shoegaze have been used interchangeably in the past, although they are now commonly considered to be different genres.  

Notable dream pop acts include My Bloody Valentine, Cocteau Twins, Beach House and This Mortal Coil. Dream pop has even found its way into the mainstream, via performers such as Lana Del Rey and The xx.

Q-Asar artists with dream pop influences include So Simple! and Heptagon's Secret.
