- Dark-New-Wave Psychedelic Goth-Rock
Videos / Songs ::: Links ::: Pictures
Formed 1980, originating in Canberra & Sydney, The Church are among the earliest goth-and-darkwave-genre-related bands and also one of the most enduring - still producing albums & touring, having released more than 20 albums. They have had numerous top 40 hits in Australia, USA and Europe most notably with "Under the Milky Way" which reached No. 2 on the US Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks. The Church are pioneers of neo-psychedelic new-wave goth-rock; dark alternative pop characterised by driving percussion and bass, rich melodic guitars in the high-register with romantic melancholic lyrics usually sung in a low dreamy manner. This sound & style was very noticeable in a later wave of mid-late-80s British goth/alt-rock music (like The Cult, The Cure, Sisters of Mercy, The Mission, The Smiths and so on).
