The Official Soundtrack To Your New Favourite Show ‘Stranger Things’ Is Coming Soon

Written by Emmy Mack on July 29, 2016

If you’re an ’80s nostalgic who’s already chewed through Netflix’s new A+++ series Stranger Things, then good news! Here’s something to tide you over during the excruciating wait for season 2.

Hold on to your cassette decks, because the sci-fi homage to the 20th century’s most awesome decade is now getting an official soundtrack to match.

The music from the show – which riffs heavily on the work of 80’s synth luminaries like John Carpenter, Vangelis, Giorgio Moroder and more – has scored just as much praise as the show itself, and thanks to popular demand, it’s now set for a standalone release.

The disc is composed of tracks by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein of Austin band S U R V I V E, and while it’s yet to be given an official release date, you can check out some of what it might have to offer on the group’s official Bandcamp page.

S U R V I V E also have their own new album coming out on September 30th, dubbed RR7349.

And if that’s still not enough, you can also listen to a playlist of rock music that was used in the show over on Spotify.

In case you haven’t already totally devoured it, Stranger Things is a Netflix-original drama series that revels in nostalgia for classic ’80s flicks like The GooniesE.T., Close Encounters of the Third Kind and more.

Anyway, it chronicles a 12-year-old boy’s mysterious disappearance in a small Indiana town in 1983. It’s pretty damn fantastic and you should totally watch it right now.
