If you too have been humming the catchy, wordless theme music from Stranger Things for the last month, then rejoice: the band behind the Netflix show’s score, S U R V I V E, has released a brand new brooding, lyric-less synth track for you to try to imitate. Below, check out “Wardenclyffe” from their upcoming album RR7349.
And if you also waited with bated breath for both volumes of the Stranger Things soundtrack to be released, then you are going to enjoy the latest effort from their entire band. Only Michael Stein and Kyle Dixon of the full four-person band composed music for Stranger Things, so I imagine S U R V I V E’s new album will have a noticeable dynamic shift. And you can sense that in “Wardenclyffe,” though it exists firmly in the same genre. The song, with it’s bleak synth-y sprawls and roiling drones, might have found a home in Stranger Things, but it also extends beyond the overt nostalgic sounds and ’80s pastiche of the show’s score.
If anything, “Wardenclyffe” indicates that RR7349 will explore more industrial sounds and harsher landscapes. From what little we’ve heard of this forthcoming record, (Out Sept. 30) it sounds like it would be best suited for hard sci-fi as the undercurrent for some deep space desperation. In other words, we are looking very forward to this album.
And if you are wondering how this might translate in a live concert setting, then be sure to catch S U R V I V E on their forthcoming tour.
