Electroclash is a style of music that fuses New Wave and electronic dance music.
The visual aesthetic of electroclash has been associated with the 1982 film Liquid Sky.
The term "Electroclash" first rose to media attention in 2001, when the Electroclash festival was held in New York. The genre was a reaction against the electronic music of the time, in favor of an artistic underground movement. The bands involved took inspiration from New Wave and modern art, and produced a synthesized pop sound. The Electroclash festival was held again in 2002 with subsequent live tours across the US and Europe in 2003 and then 2004.
