A special message from Hawkins AV Club.
Sci-fi and horror lovers across the world have been glued to Netflix’s phenomenal new TV series, Stranger Things. Set in 1983, the show focuses on the lives of the young residents of a small town in Indiana as their lives are turned upside down when 12-year-old Will Byers goes missing under mysterious circumstances.
There are plenty of good things to say about the show, but one of its most stand-out components is the phenomenal synthesizer-led score from Austin band S U R V I V E’s Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein. The eerie set of cues is some of the best TV music we’ve heard since Twin Peaks, and demand has been surging for a release of the score – at the moment, all that’s been made available is a collection of era-specific songs used in the show, which can be streamed on Spotify.
Today, on the official Stranger Things Facebook page, an announcement was made that the eagerly awaited official soundtrack is “coming soon”. You can check out the message below.
S U R V I V E also announced last week that they have signed to Relapse and have a new album, RR7349, due for release on September 30.
