Coldwave is a style of Post-Punk/New Wave music that originated in Europe in the late 1970s/early 1980s, known for its generally dark, gloomy (thus "cold") atmosphere and heavy reliance on synthesizers. It was popular predominantly in France and Poland in the 1980s, and consisted largely of bands that were heavily influenced by British post-punk acts such as Joy Division, The Cure, Bauhaus and Siouxsie and the Banshees. Some of the more notable French examples of this style are Asylum Party, KaS Product, Martin Dupont and Trisomie 21. Read more on
