Chamber pop (or ork-pop) is a subgenre of indie pop or indie rock which arose in the 1990s as a reaction against the lo-fi aesthetic of the time. Drawing from the lush orchestrations of Brian Wilson, Burt Bacharach, and Lee Hazlewood, chamber pop grew out of the lounge revivalism of the decade, but without irony or kitsch. Artists placed a renewed emphasis on melody and production, layering baroque, ornate songs with richly textured orchestral strings and horns while rejecting the traditions of grunge, electronica, and other concurrent musical movements.
