Synthwave and electro-wave are 1980s terms that describe the electronic, synthesizer-based variant of new wave and dark wave music in contrast to the more guitar-oriented variants of these genres (see cold wave and gothic rock). Some bands that have been associated with the style were Depeche Mode, Psyche, Invisible Limits, Fortification 55, Wasted Doom, Metronic, The Eternal Afflict, Second Decay, Deine Lakaien, and Drown for Resurrection.

  • Electro Wave, auch Synth(ie)-Wave genannt, war eine seit den 1980er Jahren hauptsächlich in Mitteleuropa verbreitete Bezeichnung für Künstler aus dem Wave-Umfeld, die ihre Lieder primär auf synthetischer Basis vertonten (z. B. Depeche Mode, Gary Numan, Anne Clark und Psyche). Klangcharakteristisch wurde das Genre besonders durch damals richtungsweisende Synthesizer, wie Moog Prodigy, Korg MS-20, Roland Juno-60, Roland Jupiter-8, Oberheim OB-8 oder Yamaha DX7, gestützt.

Some bands that have been associated with the style were Depeche Mode, Psyche, Invisible Limits, Fortification 55, Wasted Doom, Metronic, The Eternal Afflict, Second Decay, Deine Lakaien, and Drown for Resurrection. Caused by the restricted modifiability of early types of synthesizers, synthwave of the late 1970s/early 1980s often uses minimalist sound structures that have been described as minimal wave. Another term of the style was techno-wave. In the 1980s, the term "techno" was an abbreviation of "technological" and did not describe a specific genre of electronic dance music until 1987/88. (en)
