Also known as:  Glo-Fi
Chillwave is a style of Indietronica music, which originated predominantly from America in the summer of 2009. Chillwave artists emulate lo-fi aesthetics, such as extensive reverb, often centering on a vocalist's Pop melodies. The ways these lo-fi aesthetics and pop melodies manifest can be reminiscent of Dream Pop, Noise Pop, and/or Sunshine Pop, but chillwave artists are distinctive in their variability of recording methods and use of recent technology (e.g., laptops, samplers, etc.).
