English Summary:

New wave is a genre of rock musicpopular in the late 1970s and the 1980s with ties to mid-1970s punk rock.New wave moved away from blues and rock and roll sounds to create rock music (early new wave) or pop music (later) that incorporated disco, mod, and electronic music. Initially new wave was similar to punk rock, before becoming a distinct genre. It subsequently engendered subgenres and fusions, including synth-pop.

New wave differs from other movements with ties to first-wave punk as it displays characteristics common to pop music, rather than the more “artsy” post-punk. Although it incorporates much of the original punk rock sound and ethos,new wave exhibits greater complexity in both music and lyrics. Common characteristics of new wave music include the use of synthesizers and electronic productions, and a distinctive visual style featured in music videos and fashion.
