Baroque pop

Back | Home | Up | Next


Baroque pop as a style originated in the mid 1960s as the flipside of sunshine pop. It used similar orchestrations but was infused with a melodramatic edge which differed. Much of The Beach Boys' Pet Sounds would fall into this category, as would a lot of the later work of Phil Spector. Scott Walker is another important figure in the genre.

Modern baroque pop is characterized by an infusion of orchestral arrangements or classical type composition within an indie or indie pop setting.

Popular baroque pop artists today include:

Rufus Wainwright
Emitt Rhodes
Arcade Fire
Broken Social Scene
The Divine Comedy
Badly Drawn Boy
Sondre Lerche
Antony and the Johnsons
Kings of Convenience
Elliott Smith
Iron & Wine
Fiona Apple
