Videos: New Wave
New wave music emerged in the late 1970s as a genre that combined elements of punk rock, electronic music, and pop. It is characterized by its use of synthesizers, drum machines, and other electronic instruments, as well as a focus on dance rhythms and hooks. New wave music often features unconventional song structures and lyrics that are both introspective and socially aware. The genre enjoyed significant commercial success in the early 1980s with acts such as Duran Duran, The Human League, and Depeche Mode, and continues to influence popular music today.
