S U R V I V E - RR7349 (Relapse,2016)

Landing in the slipstream of their Stranger Things soundtrack, S U R V I V E commit their sophomore LP of tempered synthetic ecstasy and space cadet emotions. The spectres of ‘80s sci-fi and horror scores looms large and seeps from every pore of RR7349
“Experimental synth quartet S U R V I V E ' s sophomore full-length and Relapse debut is a dark, sweeping exercise in analog synth mastery. The pulsating, 9-song instrumental release showcases immense diversity between tracks - RR7349's compositions range from grim tom-tom thunder to space-age epics, pairing tense plodding grooves with meditative ambience and driving, rhythmic beats. Inspired by IDM and horror scores alike, RR7349 is simultaneously ominous and hopeful; tense and relaxed; percussive and melodic. Additionally, two of the group’s members recently scored the soundtrack for the hit new sci-fi / horror show Stranger Things on Netflix. RR7349 is a unique addition to the Relapse discography, and unquestionably S U R V I V E ' s best work to date.”
