New Romanticism was a musical and fashion movement of late New Elizabethan and early Caroline times, which developed out of Glam Rock and was strongly influenced by David Bowie. Bands involved include Duran Duran, Bauhaus and Fade. They tended to be stylish, ostentatious, art-oriented and quite intellectual, and are sometimes seen as pretentious nowdays. Their performances were theatrical and high-concept. This was extended into the use of video, which was later to elevate itself both into a major form of public entertainment and a form of high art. The sound was based around analogue synths and guitars.
