New wave is a broad music genre that encompasses numerous pop-oriented styles from the late 1970s and the 1980s. It was originally used as a catch-all for the music that emerged after punk rock, including punk itself, but may be viewed retrospectively as a more accessible counterpart of post-punk. Although new wave shared punk's DIY philosophy, the artists were more influenced by the lighter strains of 1960s pop while being opposed to the generally abrasive and political bents of punk rock and w

Wave is a genre of electronic bass music with an emphasis on emotion and melody, and a visual art style that emerged in the early 2010s in online communities. It is characterized by atmospheric melodies and harmonies, melodic and heavy bass such as reese, modern trap drums, chopped vocal samples processed with reverb and delay, and arpeggiators. Visually, it incorporates computer-generated imagery and animation, and imagery from video games and cartoons. Wave music originated on online music pla
The main qualitative characteristics of wave are its emphasis on emotions such as melancholy, dreaminess, femininity, and otherworldliness that are comparable to genres like witch house and emo rap, and on melodic and harmonic aspects using tools like arpeggiation and atmospheric
A genre of bass music, wave is typically bass heavy, and generally utilizes a filtered Reese style bass timbre. The percussion features trap-style drums with fast hi-hats, with other elements like snare and pan-hits further processed using reverb. The percussive styles used can v
Wave's visual aesthetics incorporates digital art such as computer-generated imagery and animation. In the scene's origins, these art were combined with wave music on Tumblr, and later become used as visuals for physical events. Wave can also display imagery taken from video game
The development and spread of wave music as an independent genre began in the early 2010s on online music platforms and social media, among a small community of artists—often teenagers who were not associated with club culture and the mainstream—who were making electronic music with different sonic influences but similar subjective qualities of "feeling". Plastician has said that many of those early producers were either trying to achieve rap instrumentation akin to Clams Casino, or had ...
Use of the word wave to categorize a style of music is attributed to UK-based music producer Steven "Klimeks" Adams. In c. 2013 he used the term as a keyword on SoundCloud. It was adopted and popularized by Plastician while promoting the genre in his radio shows on Rinse FM, Wave Pool mixes, at club events, and through his label Terrorhythm Recordings.
In May 2017, Vice published an article by Ezra Marcus who wrote that the wave community and bloggers were categorizing a wide range of music within a "constructed microgenre", without a distinctive or innovative sound, in order to strategically exploit algorithms on streaming platforms such as YouTube. Plastician responded to Marcus's article, arguing that most wave producers were generally younger people who lack the expertise to strategically influence algorithms for marketing purposes.

Dude, why do you keep asking a citation for Argentina? For the other regional scenes you don´t ask any. --Rivet138 (talk) 22:34, 12 February 2012 (UTC) 1. There is extensive reliable sourced material of the U.S. and U.K scenes in the article. There is sentence long material for the Finland and Dutch scenes also backed by reliable sources. Some Wikipedia editors would require an additional cite for the Inbox and are in their rights to do so I don't personally flag these. 2. The Argentine issue is a totally different situation. The editor added new material to the Infobox. No reliably sourced material about the Argentine scene was added to the main article nor a reliable source for provided for the claim that Argentina had a scene. It is up to the editor adding material to find reliable sources for it. Other editors who discover the uncited materials have several options, do nothing leave it be, do your work and try and find a citation for the material, delete the material on the spot...1) New Wave ended in the mid '80's - how can present music that is influenced by this period be termed 'new' wave when it's coming up to 40 year's old now.It was alway's a loose definition anyway,...2) This sentence seems a bit pointless really "While some journalists and fans regarded this as a revival, others argue that the phenomenon is a continuation of the original movements" - see above,...3) The Chillwave connection is a bit tenuous to say the least.4) Alot of the bands mentioned are already included in other genre revival pages that have a more obvious influence - all seems more to with marketing - include the bands in as many dubious genre a...
I would like to reorganize the article. The overview section would be split up into discussions of the term and definitions with the U.S. British differences subsection going there. The other section would discuss the various sub genres and styles. The synthpop paragraph now in the U.S. section would move to the subgenres section. Early synthpop like Gary Numan certainly fit into New Wave in the U.K. The issue remains that New Romantic and later synthpop still is not. The book I having been using as a source has added important details and understanding of the various subgenres and U.S/U.K. differences its author is an American who views all late 1970s to mid 1980's synthpop as essential part of New Wave. Right now his book is the probably the only book length study since the 80's dedicated to New Wave, remember the Reynolds book important and influential as it is was about post punk. As it has been the article leaves the misleading impression that synthpop was only popular in U.S....
The music genre 'New Wave' has always been capitalized since the genre came into existence in the 1970s. Same goes with 'New Age' music. Hiddenstranger (talk) 07:50, 5 March 2013 (UTC) 1. I beg to differ. That usage is antiquated and totally inconsistent with other genre spellings. Neither "new" nor "wave" are proper nouns, and per Wikipedia, "Names of musical or literary genres do not require capitalization at all, unless the genre name contains a proper noun such as the name of a place. For example: 1.1. 1.1.1. Incorrect: They are a Psychedelic Rock band. 1.1.2. Correct: They are a psychedelic rock band." 1. What is the difference between "a Psychedelic Rock band" and "a New Wave band"? I see none. The capitalization (as with New Age/new age) looks outdated. 1. As for your assertion that it has always been so, I can attest that is not the case. I began working as a music journalist in 1984, writing and editing for such publications (well known for covering new wave music) as "Cree...
While they are mentioned in the article, I believe DEVO should be given more prominence and probably a photo. They are not only the ultimate personification of what is now understood to be "New Wave", but they are arguably its true originators.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.19922:32, 1 August 2013 (UTC) You're right. It is arguable. Research The Talking Heads and XTC. Their efforts predate DEVO by at least a year. Actually, if you want to talk originators, you'd couldn't possible exclude Iggy Pop or David Bowie either among many others. I really think that to even attempt to pin down any one "originator" is not only futile, but smacks of favoritism as well. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 04:41, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
In the UK, there are never hyphens used in the term "New wave music". It's simply incorrect. Changing the article title was unjustified (and undiscussed), but I'll hold back from reverting that change until there's been some more discussion. I'll take them out of the lead, though. Ghmyrtle (talk) 08:59, 3 May 2014 (UTC) 1. I agree, I've never seen "new wave" hyphenated. Incorrect and doesn't look right at all - just keep it as "New wave music"! – Hiddenstranger (talk) 20:48, 3 May 2014 (UTC) 1.1. 1.1.1. This book published in the UK by Cambridge Univ. Press and written by British musicologist Allan F. Moore uses the hyphenated form when in the context of an adjective, and non-hyphenated when used as a noun, just as in normal English grammar used also in America. Here's another British book that does it that way. And another. Dicklyon (talk) 22:52, 3 May 2014 (UTC) 1.2. Presumably this was done because it was assumed that this was an adjective. It is a noun.--SabreBD (talk) 21:13, 3...
Can someone please put the typical instrument section back. some people may think it is not needful but I think it is. I am a guest not signed in and I don't want to add it and be sent a message that I am wrong. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 20:01, 20 October 2015 (UTC)
The article suggests that New Wave music was similar to Punk Rock. I find this notion absurd; if anything they are polar opposites. New Wave had more in common with disco than with punk. Punk rock was loud, heavy guitar driven and not at all radio friendly (i.e. very 'anti-establishment'); New Wave was super radio friendly pop music with a synth driven sound. The only similarity I can see is that in some ways, the way certain New Wave artists dressed or wore their hair was influenced by punk fashion sensibilities. This shouldn't be overstated however; big part of the punk rock sensibility was that they were not concerned with being fashionable or 'looking pretty' whereas New Wave artists tended to be very fashion conscious. I think the idea that punk and new wave were similar in some way simply comes from the presumption that they MUST have been similar because, well, both types of bands were often featured at CBGBs, and some New Wave bands had previous incarnations as punk bands, e...
"New Wave was more of a movement than a music style. New wave bands are the bands that by 1976, when punk rock was at it's best, were walking alongside punk, but weren't quite punk. Many punk bands, like The Sex Pistols and The Ramones, kept with the garage rock anarchism, and some others kept it up for a while and then began experimenting other music styles, like The Clash, who experimented hip hop and reggae, or The Damned and Siouxsie And The Banshees, who went goth. But there were singers bands that started to experiment, to advance towards the pop music, with the sarcasm and the agression of punk rockers, like Elvis Costello, Joe Jackson, Talking Heads, XTC and Japan. They started to improve both musically and lirically, and also started to use synthesizers, thus creating what reviewers called 'New Wave', a new way to make punk music. After 1976, some slow punk rock bands started to appear, bands with dark sound, lyrics and visual, like Joy Division, post-1977 Siouxsie and The...
This Article needs to stick with the topic first of all!!! Secondly it needs to be rewritten all over, with minor exceptions. Lets try actually listening to music in a particular Music Genre to decide on what the style is, and typical instruments are, so if someone wants to compose music in this Style they will have a better grasps of the expressions, feel, and over all production back then. This should not be written in a music review fashion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 14:05, 19 January 2017 (UTC) 1. I agree that the article needs to be rewritten essentially from scratch. ilil (talk) 18:51, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
