Picopop is a type of electronic music, similar to electropop, with origins in Japanese experimental bands.

The name derives from "pikopiko" (the Japanese word to describe bleepy, dreamy electronic sounds such as 8-bit, etc.) and pop.

Correspondingly, the style is characterised by the prominent and ingenious use of electronic instruments and effects with an often frantic, fun, pop style.
