Shoegaze is a genre of alternative rock music that emerged in the late 1980s and early 1990s. It is characterized by its ethereal soundscapes, heavy use of guitar effects, and dreamy vocals. Shoegaze music often features a wall of sound created by multiple layers of distorted guitars, bass, and drums. The genre is often associated with the "shoegazing" technique of looking down at one's shoes while playing guitar, hence the name. Shoegaze is often seen as a precursor to the post-rock and dream pop genres.
