Gothic music is a subgenre of post-punk and alternative rock that originated in the United Kingdom in the late 1970s. It is characterized by its use of dark themes and lyrics, and often incorporates elements of gothic literature, horror films, and romantic poetry. Gothic music is known for its use of brooding, introspective lyrics and its distinctive, atmospheric sound, which often incorporates synthesizers and unconventional instrumentation.

Gothic music evolved out of the post-punk and gothic rock scenes of the late 1970s and early 1980s. It was influenced by a variety of musical and cultural influences, including punk, glam rock, and the goth subculture. Gothic music is often associated with the goth subculture, which emerged in the 1980s and is characterized by its interest in gothic literature, horror films, and alternative fashion.
