Info

Darkwave is an umbrella term which refers to a movement that began in the late 1970s, coinciding with the popularity of New Wave and Post Punk era. It also built upon the basic principles of Punk and New Wave, Darkwave evolved through the addition of dark, thoughtful lyrics and an undertone of darker sounds.

In the 1980s a versatile subculture developed within the Darkwave movement, whose members were called “wavers” or “dark wavers”. Gothic rock became included in this movement so darkwave became an important part of the Gothic scene and closely connected with the Gothic subculture, as well as becoming an integral part of the Industrial scene/genre as well.
