“Stranger Things”

Netflix

The composers of the dark, ominous soundtrack for Netflix’s “Stranger Things” just released a new music video that’s worth a look and a listen.

The artists responsible, Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein, make up part of the retro-electronic-duo SURVIVE. Directed by Chris Rusch, the video features dynamic drone shots and the duo mixing their sounds in what looks like a dimly-lit warehouse. The video was shot in Los Angeles, Croatia and the band’s home city of Austin, TX. The featured track “Copter” comes from their second album, “RR7349,” and was produced by Relapse Records.

Matt and Ross Duffer, the brothers who created “Stranger Things,” were apparently fans of SURVIVE and contacted the band to see if they could use their track “Dirge” for the show’s original mini-trailer, which was ultimately pitched to Netflix. The track fit, the show was picked up and Dixon and Stein signed on to do the show’s entire soundtrack.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Dixon said, “Before we had even gotten the job, [the Duffer brothers] basically told us like, ‘We know you can do scary shit and dark stuff so you need to show the producers that you can do some of the more lighthearted things.'”
