    Indie pop (also typeset as indie-pop or indiepop) is a music genre and subculture that combines guitar pop with DIY ethic in opposition to the style and tone of mainstream pop music. It originated from British post-punk [4] in the late 1970s and subsequently generated a thriving fanzine , label , and club and gig circuit.

  4. Indie pop. Indie pop is a genre of alternative rock which originated in the United Kingdom in the 1980s. Originally and often still a form of independent music, it is closely associated with indie rock, both genres are similar, yet there are differences between both. Indie rock tends to be edgier, rougher and harsher-sounding, contrasting the ...

    Why is Indie Pop only in Post-punk? 18:45, 26 September 2011 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Theburning25 (talk • contribs)

    Twee pop is sorely lacking on Wikipedia. I don't think we can simply dismiss it as being synonymous with indie pop, as it's a movement in its own right. There was a conversation about starting a twee pop article here a few years ago, but nothing seems to have come out it. Right now I'm trying to find sources on which we can base a twee pop article. After a quick search, I found these: 1. Allmusic profile 2. About.com profile 3. TweeNet Surely there are more sources? I'm not very good at finding them. Help would be appreciated. Carbrain (talk) 10:53, 5 October 2012 (UTC) I agree...Twee was its own separate movement, not just "indie pop" 76.171.240.103 (talk) 15:57, 22 December 2012 (UTC) No such thing as twee pop. It's just a term coined by American music journalists to describe UK indie pop to their readership. --Ef80 (talk) 14:35, 7 November 2014 (UTC) 1. "No such thing as twee pop. It's just a term" — Huh?

    This article has a lot of problems. While I don't disagree with some of the statements, they are not sourced and appear to be only opinions on for example the origins of the genre. The importance of the C86 compilation (and the reissues) is repeatedly overstated, and the term 'C86' was only retrospectively used for bands from the late 80s that had little similarity to most of the bands on the C86 album - the article states that these later bands were influenced by the compilation, but that simply isn't true - they may have been influenced by some of the bands on the compilation (and undoubtedly many others that weren't). This article shouldn't be about the C86 compilation - it really wasn't all that important at the time. The whole 'Roots' section is unsourced - C81 had nothing to do with indie pop (it just had a similar name to C86) and the rise of independent record labels was related but not the same as indie pop (take a look at some of the indie charts from the era - mostly not...

    Hmm... There's only history of the subject before the '90's, nothing afterwards. Indie pop has gone a long way since then, and most people that lick a link here probably want to know more about the recent history of indie pop as well. Anyone have any good ideas of places for sources for more recent history?Awsomaw (talk) 03:30, 24 February 2019 (UTC)

    I'm surprised that this article doesn't link to List of indie pop artists, but I'm not sure where such a link should be situated in the article, so I haven't made that edit myself. Jcejhay (talk) 21:39, 4 March 2019 (UTC)

    Why are "alternative pop" and "alt pop" redirects to this page. Whenever I see either term (and as I've exemplified in pages for albums like Spiders and The Beta Band), it is used to describe a very different style(s) of music than indie pop. - TangoTizerWolfstone (talk) 01:30, 18 April 2017 (UTC) 1. "Alternative pop" is a term that has no currency. The only source I've ever found that attempts to define it is AllMusic, which calls it "essentially a catch-all term for post-punk bands from the mid-'80s to the mid-'90s." The closest thing to that is indie pop. Other people might think of "alt-pop" as a synonym for art pop, experimental pop, avant-pop, progressive pop, and so on.--Ilovetopaint (talk) 04:37, 18 April 2017 (UTC) 1. For what it's worth, here are a couple of other appearances of these terms: Merriam-Webster.com has an entry for "alternative pop," defining it as "pop music that has broad appeal but that is produced by performers who are outside the musical mainstream and th...

    Look, I know that indie pop is a very closely related of indie rock, but every site I seen treats it as a full-on subgenre of pop. Shouldn't we give it the same colors as the other pop genres? 72.208.178.248 (talk) 04:21, 23 May 2021 (UTC) 1. 1.1. Looking at the indie pop article which is mostly about the NME's C86, indie pop should be in the same colours as all the other alternative music articles, whilst alt-pop (if an article is ever created) should be in the same colours as all the chart pop stuff as most online articles about alt-pop these seem to relate to teenagers/young adults in the chart and not artists who would have the C86 tape in the collection or have ever seen a printed copy of the NME in the shops.
