We were really excited when we learned that the soundtrack to Stranger Things was officially being released. What’s even more exciting is the fact that it’s being released in two parts, and you can pick up the first one today.
For now, the only place to get the first volume is on iTunes: it will come out in physical form on September 16th, while the second volume will be released digitally on August 19th and physically on September 23rd.
While it broke from the show’s nostalgic tendencies, the score by Austin-based band Survive really helped embellish the show’s dark and moody tone. The show’s creators, Matt and Ross Duffer, were each fans of the band, and used some of their music when they initially pitched the show.
If two volumes isn’t enough, the band has posted up several of their other records on Bandcamp. and has a new album, RR7349, coming on September 30th.
