Tangerine Dream Tackles the ‘Stranger Things’ Soundtrack
To say that Tangerine Dream are an important band to the landscape of cinema is a bit of an understatement. Throughout the '70s and into today, the band has released dozens of soundtracks amongst their more than 100 albums (yep), including classics like Sorcerer, Thief, Risky Business and Firestarter, in addition to influencing legions of bands that followed in their path. You can bet that SURVIVE are one of them.
Austin's SURVIVE first came on the scene in 2011, using warm analog synths to paint sonically vivid pictures, much like Tangerine Dream and John Carpenter. Releases on the much loved Holodeck and 540 Records followed; and then, of course, came SURVIVE members Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein's involvement in the Stranger Things soundtrack, which earned them rave reviews and a growing following.
Now the circle is complete, as the pupil has become the master: Tangerine Dream have offered their take on the Stranger Things soundtrack with their recent posting of ";-) (without glitch)" and ";-) II" to SoundCloud. Check it out below, and we'll see you in the Upside Down.
