"Cold Wave" is a loose descriptor, derived from "New Wave", that was originally reserved for a collection of punk and electronic styles from the 1970s and early 1980s. Punk, with a depressive groove. Less guitar work, more analogue experimentation, militant rhythm sections and, above all else, a vehemently do-it-yourself attitude as a part of cold wave's shared ideology. Inspired by the icy guitars and studio-produced drums. In later years, "Cold Wave" was subsumed under the retrospective labels "Minimal Wave" or "Minimal Synth". Sounds pioneered by Factory Records producer Martin Hannett. The term is an early synonym for what was later called "Dark Wave", "Goth", and "Deathrock".
