Art Rock


Art rock is a term describing a subgenre of rock music that tends to have experimental or avant-garde influences and emphasizes novel sonic texture.

The term art rock was initially used for 70s krautrock bands and progressive rock artists like Can, Soft Machine, Brian Eno, Talking Heads. In the nineties the term was also used for more noise rock and experimental rock associated acts like Sonic Youth, Public Image Ltd., Deerhoof, Liars who also have a strong focus on avant garde music, experimental music and art in general as well as rock music, punk rock and no wave. This may lead to some confusion. The latter group of bands are sometimes also called art punk or avant-punk.
