The year 1977 heralded the dawn of Punk Rock, but equally important, it ushered a wildly inventive genre known as "New Wave" into the global pop charts. The term encapsulated a broad range of vibrant new styles: synth pop, post-punk, mod, power pop & new romantic to name a few. New Wave artists were known for their intense visual flair, architectural hairstyles, keytars and a "space age" sartorial splendor. In point of fact "Video Killed the Radio Star" by The Buggles was the video that launched MTV at midnight on August 1st, 1981. UMPG is proud to represent the most iconic, dynamic and synch-friendly songs of the New Wave era.
