Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein Perform the Music of Stranger Things

Part of Nile Rodgers' Meltdown

Hear the dreamy score for Netflix series and pop culture phenomenon Stranger Things performed live by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein of Austin band S U R V I V E.

The soundtrack that Dixon and Stein created for the first series of Stranger Things, released in 2016, won a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Main Title Theme Music and two Grammy nominations.

The duo then returned to score series two in 2017 and are currently working on series three, due to premiere this summer on 4 July.

Series creators The Duffer Brothers fell in love with S U R V I V E’s music, which spins classic synths into a distinctly modern sound – and the resulting alchemy produced the most talked-about soundtrack of the year.

Texas natives Dixon and Stein were born in the early 1980s, when the inspirations for Stranger Things were being made. They met as teenagers and gravitated towards the analogue, electronic tones of their childhoods.

Formed in 2009, S U R V I V E has toured extensively around the US and Europe and recently released their second studio album, RR7349.

Stranger Things is a nostalgic nod to 1980s sci-fi and horror classics. It has earned 31 Emmy nominations, including two for Outstanding Drama. The cast includes Winona Ryder.
