From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nu gaze refers to a form of alternative rock that originated in the 2000s that is directly influenced by the primarily British shoegaze scene of the late 1980s and early 1990s.[1] A renewed interest in shoegaze occurred in the early 2000s when bands such as Maps, My Vitriol, and Silversun Pickups first emerged across both sides of the Atlantic. The origin of the moniker "nu gaze" has been credited to an interview in 2001 with My Vitriol frontman Som Wardner[2] in which he denied his band was shoegaze, instead stating humorously, "I guess you could call us nu gaze".

According to an article in The Oxford Student, music from the genre features "droning riffs, subdued vocals and walls of distorted, messy guitar or synth".[3] The style of the music relies on using various effects such as looping, effects pedals and synthesizers to distort the music.[4] The shoegaze revival draws inspiration heavily from shoegaze but incorporates more modern synthesizers and drum tracks.

The ambient guitar band Hammock, based in Nashville, Tennessee is notable for their ambient rock that combines elements of shoegaze and ambient music. Their 2016 album, Everything and Nothing, best exemplifies their Nu Gaze sound. Ulrich Schnauss' 2007 album Goodbye demonstrates the influence of techno and ambient music on the Nu Gaze genre. Ulrich collaborates and performs with numerous artists such as Tangerine Dream and The Engineers. The Icelandic band Sigur Ros a more alternative and ambient rock tendencies. Their light filled bombastic performances and Icelandic language songs frequently wow audiences.
