Two of the four members of the Austin, Texas band, Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein, put together the two-part soundtrack for “Stranger Things.” Dixon and Stein jumped at the opportunity to work on the show when contacted by creators Matt and Ross Duffer, aka the Duffer Brothers.

“The [Duffer brothers] reached out to us last July with a trailer they had made using one of our songs. It’s a song called ‘Dirge,’” Dixon told IndieWire in a recent interview. “Once they got greenlit, they reached out to see if we were still a band, if we were still available. We were obviously interested and sent them a bunch of unreleased stuff to listen to in the meantime. And then we started the whole pitch process, giving them some stuff to put in front of producers…We had a little bit of a trial period there, and it ended up working out. So we’re grateful for that.”

Starring Winona Ryder as the mother of a boy who disappears in Indiana in the 1980s, the eight-hour series pays homage to Stephen King, Guillermo del Toro and Steven Spielberg by combining supernatural elements with creepy, frightening storytelling.
