kyle dixon & michael stein Stranger Things Season 2 (a Netflix Original Series Soundtrack) (CD, £9.50) due 01-12-2017label: Invada
Following on from 2016’s success with ‘Stranger Things 1’, this score needs no introduction and is destined to be one of the biggest soundtracks of 2017. Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein of Texas band Survive return to score ‘Stranger Things 2’, the follow up to their Emmy winning and Grammy nominated score to ‘Stranger Things 1’. Their second time around once again steers away from cliché, maintaining the pace they’ve set for themselves while subtly shifting tactics just enough to keep fans hooked. Their lush, deep music quickly shifts with jarring synth blips and misty, creaky chords whilst slowly descending into darkness. This score will appeal to fans of ‘Stranger Things 1’, ‘Drive’ OST, John Carpenter, Tangerine Dream and Trent Reznor. The score is presented as a jewel case CD featuring beautiful artwork taken from the series.
