There's something indefinable about pop music. Pop is an experience - a state of mind. Pop is that moment when a piece of music, for no good reason, lights up your life. However, Pop music is more than just feel-good sounds. The world of pop is a serious and complex business for all involved, from the stars in the bright lights to the dealmakers in the background. Surviving that unforgiving environment is often a case of making it overseas, so through our pop artists Australia has held an ever-evolving cultural conversation with the rest of the musical world.
