Dark Wave, also written as darkwave, is a music genre that began in the late 1970s, coinciding with the popularity of New Wave and post-punk.
Building on those basic principles,dark wave added dark, introspective lyrics and an undertone of sorrow for some bands.
In the 1980s, a subculture developed alongside dark wave music, whose members were called "wavers" or "dark wavers".
The British post-punk groups that inspired Gothic rock provided initial impetus for the movement. As a result, dark wave is linked to the Goth subculture.
