What type of goth listener am I?

I'm trying to broaden my scope with 80s goth rock a bit. But I've checked out about 20 other bands now, but I can't find something that clicks. I'm often turned off by bands that have too much of a punk sound. Or bands that have vocals I dislike, like too monotone (Sisters of Mercy, band always kind of felt like a goth pastiche?) or too punk (shouting with thick british accent). I care a lot about vocals in my music, if I don't like the singer I won't like the band.
The bands i like most are definitely the proto classics: Cure, Bauhaus, Joy Division and Siouxsie and the Banshees. And also: Asylum Party, Xmal Deutschland, Killing Joke, Echo and the Bunnymen, Cocteau Twins.

What should I be looking for? Any recommendations? Sorry for my rigidness.
