New Romantic is a music genre that emerged in the late 1970s and early 1980s in the United Kingdom. It is a form of synth-pop and post-punk that combines elements of glam rock, art rock, and disco. It is characterized by its use of synthesizers, drum machines, and electronic instruments, as well as its emphasis on fashion and visual style. It is often associated with the flamboyant and androgynous look of its performers, which often included makeup, outrageous costumes, and hairstyles. New Romantic music is often upbeat and melodic, with lyrics that focus on themes of love, romance, and escapism.
