The American indie pop scene was even more underground than Britian's and was led by bands like Music/BeatHappening, Music/TheMagneticFields, Music/YoLaTengo and Low. The only place where indie pop became a significant chart success before the turn of the millennium was New Zealand during the mid-to-late 1980s, bands like The Chills and The Clean scored hit singles out of the homegrown Dunedin Sound scene.

Early indie pop acts like Heavenly and The Vaselines were often more influential than they were successful, but few others, such as Music/TheSundays and The Wedding Present, had minor chart hits in the UK and United States. The success of {{Britpop}} largely kept indie pop underground in the UK for most of the 90s, with only Music/BelleAndSebastian getting any significant press and became one of the biggest cult bands of the decade. Critics loved them and their following was large enough that they not only scored a few Top 40 singles but also, through fan vote, won Best New Artist at the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1999_Brit_Awards 1999 Brit Awards]] despite having already released three well selling albums.

Indie pop first grew into popularity in the early 1980s, where it was especially used to describe British acts featured on the NME compilation ''[=C86=]''. British indie pop bands in the 1980s were influenced by '60s music, jangly guitars and melodic PowerPop structures, and especially the music of Music/TheSmiths. They often recorded for very small labels such as Sarah Records.

In America, however, indie pop was just a cult genre until TheNewTens, where it ''really'' became popular.

The real turning point for the genre in terms of mainstream popularity was the release of Music/ThePostalService's ''Give Up'' in 2003. While not a major seller at start, good word of mouth and the rising popularity of lead singer Ben Gibbard's other band Music/DeathCabForCutie resulted in it becoming something of an indie rock cult classic. The album was certified Platinum in the United States and its single "Such Great Heights" became one of the most popular indie songs of the whole decade.
