An extension of alternative/independent rock, Sadcore is slow, fragile and gut-wrenching music made by and for the depressed.

Themes usually include but are not limited to: heartbreak, loss, and misery.

Sadcore bands like American Music Club and Red House Painters channel their pain and suffering into music that is hauntingly beautiful — the perfect soundtrack for solitary late-night listening.
