Shoegazing/Dream Pop

Shoegazing or dream pop is a subgenre of indie and alternative rock that emerged in the United Kingdom in the late 1980s. It is characterized by its ethereal-sounding mixture of obscured vocals, guitar distortion and feedback. Artists tend to stand still during live performances in a detached, introspective, non-confrontational state with their heads down.This was because the heavy use of effects pedals meant the performers were often looking down at the readouts on their effects pedals during concerts.
