Dark wave

A subgenre of alternative and electronic music characterized by its moody and atmospheric sound. It typically features deep, resonant vocals, melancholic melodies, and a sense of introspection. Dark wave emerged in the late 1970s and has since evolved into various substyles, including cold wave and ethereal wave. It often explores themes of existentialism, romance, and the darker aspects of human emotion. Dark wave’s haunting and evocative sound has a dedicated fan base and continues to influence a wide range of artists across different musical genres.
