Out now! Stranger Things soundtrack
“The directors were previously fans of S U R V I V E. They used a song from our first LP in a trailer they made to pitch their concept to Netflix. Once the show was picked up, they reached out to see if we were available to score the show,” Dixon stated. Stein added, “We discussed having a classic tone and feel to the music for the show but being reserved enough that it wasn’t ’80s cheese, while offering a refreshing quality so that felt modern. This was one of the qualities that drew them to our music in the first place. Having a familiarity with classic synths worked, but with an overall forward thinking approach.”
The soundtrack to Stranger Things is released in 2 parts by Lakeshore Records. Volume One releases digitally today August 12th and on CD September 16th. Volume Two releases digitally August 19th and on CD September 23.
