Netflix’s new show Stranger Things might have captivated audiences with its nods to some of the classic films of the 1980s, but one of the best things about the show is the fantastic soundtrack that accompanies it.
The show follows a small town in 1983 Indiana when a boy goes missing one night. Hailed for its nostalgia for films such as E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, The Goonies, and others, it’s scored by an incredible synth-based score composed by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein of the Austin-based band S U R V I V E. The show’s soundtrack perfectly suits the show’s somber and dark tone, and fans of the show have been asking if a soundtrack would be released.
Due to the demand, Netflix announced yesterday that a soundtrack is coming:
There’s no release date for the soundtrack just yet, but if you can’t wait for the it, you can find the band’s music on Bandcamp. The band also has a new album coming on September 30th, titled RR7349.
If that doesn’t hold you over, you can listen to a playlist of the rock music that was used in the show over on Spotify.
Stranger Things is now streaming on Netflix.
