PingMag On New Rave
Tokyo’s PingMag has a fetature that explores the New Rave movement that seems to have come out of the UK and is even washing up on the shores of Japan. PingMag lists New Rave bands like the Klaxons, New Young Pony Club, SHITDOSCO, CSS and DIGITALISM and says:
As for the sound – it might be best described as 80’s influenced Electro Rock or Disco Punk, and its connection with Electroclash that triggered a massive boom in the early 2000s can’t be ignored either. However when compared with Electroclash, New Rave is characterised by its stronger tendency towards rock music.
