Related to noisepop/shoegaze, but distinguished by frequent use of non-guitar electronics. Dates from the 80s but is experiencing a mdoern revival (M83 et al.)
dreampop is related to but has distinct origins from shoegaze

A US postpunk-revival band, that despite comparisons with the UK band Editors implying that they are a ripoff

-Interpol predates Editors by years
-both bands are indebted to Joy Division, so the ripoff accusations are irrelevant

They are known for Paul Banks' distinctive vocals.

also some police group but who gives a fuck about that, right?
Interpol sounds just like Editors? Yeah, well I bet Iron Maiden tribute groups sound like Iron Maiden, too

A catch-all term for the related genres of shoegaze and dreampop which avoids the contentious label shoegaze, which is rejected by many artists who fit the definition. It also avoids the contentious label shoegaze, which some use to refer ONLY to an 80s English rock scene, not modern American bands inspired by that scene.
Ceremony, Skywave, and A Place to Bury Strangers have all been inspired by shoegaze, but blissrock is a less contentious term.
