Indie Pop a.k.a. Indie-Pop is a record label.
- official website: www.indie-pop.com
Indie pop is a genre of alternative rock music that originated in the United Kingdom in the mid-1980s, with its roots in Scottish post-punk bands on the Postcard Records label in the early 1980s and the dominant UK independent band of the mid-1980s, The Smiths. Indie pop was inspired by punk's DIY ethic and related ideologies, and it generated a thriving fanzine, label, and club and gig circuit. Indie pop differs from indie rock to the extent that it is more melodic, less abrasive, and relatively angst-free.

The Klomps band promo shot on Muri Beach, on the east side of Rarotonga, in the Cook Islands.
Sue, Mike and Nick are not really a band. That was a joke. But it looks like a band promo shot, don't you think?
