Although strongly associated with TheEighties, since the 2000s or so it has had a revival in the form of modern acts that use a deliberately {{Retraux}} sound to emulate the style of classic synth pop as a GenreThrowback to this era. A term used for similar-sounding modern artists is ''electropop''; the difference between the two is subtle but electropop is entirely electronic music (synths, drum machines etc.) with a poppy bent while synth pop is pop which happens to use electronics, and may have guitar and acoustic drums (which electropop as a rule doesn't). A term used during TheNineties was ''electroclash'' for a subgenre that combined synth pop with Main/{{Techno}}. "Tumblr pop" is another colloquialism used to refer to a specific 2010s variant of it that mixes in heavy dream pop, trap, witch house, and (sometimes) vaporwave elements, with the name coming from its association with Tumblr; Music/CharliXCX, Music/{{Lorde}}, Music/{{Halsey}}, Music/{{Grimes}}, and Music/PurityRing all helped establish and popularize the style.
