New Pop was a British music movement rooted in the post-punk movement of the late 1970s. In terms of style, most of its bands had little in common with each other, but it consisted mainly of ambitious, DIY-minded artists who achieved commercial success in the United States through the cable music channel MTV. "New Music" is a roughly equivalent but slightly more expansive umbrella term used by the music industry and by American music journalists during the 1980s to characterize the "new" movements like New Pop and New Romantic. New Music was a pop music and cultural phenomenon in the US associated with the Second British Invasion.
