Indietronica (also called Indie electronic) is a music genre that combines indie, electronica, post rock and pop music (IDM, clicks`n`cuts, glitch, ambient).
Birth: 1997 Bloom: 2003
The term «indie» came from the word «independent». This is an umbrella term for a wide range of musicians and styles united by underground or counterculture.
The style was formed in the late 90s. Founders of this style include groups such as Dntel, The Go Find, The Postal Service, and The Notwist. The emergence of the German label Morr Music in 2001 headed by Thomas Morr foreshadowed the movement proper. Typical instruments used in indietronica music are electronic keyboard, synthesizer, sampler, software synthesizer, MIDI controller, and drum machine.
Umbrellate style: Synth-Pop
