NU rave save the rave new rave girls rave raver
New Rave sometimes labelled Nu Rave or Neu Rave is a term applied to several types of music that go from fusing elements of electronic, New Wave, rock, indie, to techno hip house, electro, breakbeat.
The British music magazine NME is largely responsible for popularising the term throughout 2006 and 2007, despite having claimed in mid-2008 reviews that "New Rave is over". The genre has connotations of being a 'new' version of 'rave' as well as being a corruption of the term 'new wave'.
Klaxons, Trash Fashion, New Young Pony Club,Hadouken!, Late of the Pier, Test Icicles, Bono Must Die and SHITDISCO are generally accepted as the main exponents of the genre.
The aesthetics of the New Rave scene are largely similar to those of the original rave scene, being mostly centred around psychedelic visual effects. Glowsticks, neon and other lights are common, and followers of the scene often dress in extremely bright and fluorescent coloured clothing.Indeed, many consider New Rave to be defined more by the image and aesthetic of its bands and supporters, than by the somewhat vague sonic criteria. Trash Fashion lead singer, Jet Storm, and Electro heroine Uffie, have been described as the scene's very own pin ups. Nevertheless, the usage of electronic instruments, a musical fusion of rock and dance styles, and a particular anarchic, trashy energy are certainly key elements.
One of the things that distinguished New Rave from other movements was the use of ketamine, wearing of fluorescent colours and the emphasis on celebrity. Clubs appeared where people would go to dress up and some of the best young fashion designers, artists and musicians would be sure to make an appearance. One of the most influential clubs, organised by musician K-Tron and Jim Warboy called All You Can Eat became a regular haunt for artist Stuart Semple, fashion designer Rubbish Fairy and performance artist Theo Adams and members of rock group Trash Fashion.
The actual sound of original Rave is barely (if at all) discernible (save some typical analogue synth lines) in the majority of bands referred to as 'new rave' . Bands such as The Sunshine Underground, Cansei de Ser Sexy, Solo Combo, and Hot Chip are often labelled as New Rave due to their large following by fans of the genre, despite evolving in a different musical culture and, in some cases, a different country. M.I.A. has been described as "a new raver before it was old." Several have publicly declared they had nothing to do with the genre.
In their review of the Klaxons' new album, Myths of the Near Future, the NME branded all ravers of the traditional rave scene as “twats with baggy trousers”. 
The New Rave scene can be viewed as a media construct, largely propounded by the NME and TRAX with other publications treating the subject as a joke. The belief that many of the bands associated with New Rave can more appropriately be associated with the genre of dance-punk has given credence to such suggestions, although differences between both genres are said to be minor and more down to aesthetics. John Harris has stated in The Guardian newspaper that the genre is nothing more than a "piss-poor supposed 'youthquake'" that will soon go out of fashion in the same way as rave. In season 3 of the BBC comedy The Mighty Boosh, the song 'Eels' sung by Noel Fielding made satirical references to Nu-Rave, in an episode titled Eels.
