I have been following the evolution of music in my own way. I can authoritatively say that music has come from a long way and it is even evolving more. We should expect more to happen in the near future even I give a standing ovation to the current crop of bands and musicians. There is more to hope for and to look forward to especially if the upcoming artists keep up the pace of their predecessors. Having been in the revolution of rock music of the 1980s, I have a few issues to indicate especially based on new wave music.
New wave music was very significant towards the end of the 1970s. The genre included everything that was after the punk movement. Majority of us in those times thought that the movement was a perfect replacement to rock and mainstream pop.
History Of New Wave Music
New wave is different from other genres that are tied to the first-wave punk. New wave music has similar characteristics to pop music even though it has maintained the original ethos of punk rock sound. It however displays characteristics that are complex both in lyrics and music. New wave has common characteristics with other genres such as diversity, electronic productions, making use of synthesizers, and significance of styling among others. New wave is certainly a definitive genre of the early 1980s. The genre has enjoyed a huge following from all walks of life and it has continued to evolve more in the contemporary ages so as to benefit even more people. If you do not love the genre today, it will evolve in a way that you will love tomorrow. New wave artists are believed to be so attached to their music that they do not even think of setting up a band.
Oakey, Catherall, and Sulley have said time and again that they
enjoy performing together. They intend to hold together for longer
than expected. Sulley even says that she does not know what to
do besides doing music.
