Nu Goth is a Sub Genre of the gothic community heavily rooted and influenced by traditional gothic music, esthetics and philosophy. Popular bands among Nu Goths include Siouxie & The Banshees, Bauhaus, and Switchblade Symphony among many others from the Batcave and Post-punk era. It is important to note Nu Goth culture supports and encourages self discovery above all else. Within the culture, Nu Goths are encouraged to listen to all genres of music to expand their sense of self. For this reason it is not uncommon to run into Indie Nu Goths or Industrial Nu Goths. Nu Goths are deeply philosophical by nature and have a great interest in studying the human condition often thru Psychology, Philosophy, and the Occult. For this reason occult clothing and symbology is a vast part of the Nu Goth esthetic and culture.
