Nu gaze or nu gazing is a form of alternative rock originating in the 2000s and drawing influence from the shoegazing scene of the late 1980s and early 1990s.  Nu gaze rose to popularity around 2007 when bands such as Maps, Blonde Redhead, and Silversun Pickups emerged on the scene. According to an article in the Oxford Student, music from the genre features "droning riffs, subdued vocals and walls of distorted, messy guitar or synth". The style of the music relies on using various effects such as looping, effects pedals and synthesizers to distort the music. Nu gaze draws inspiration heavily from shoegaze but incorporates modern rock.
