Tangerine Dream should be no stranger to any fans of 80’s cinema. I learned about the group via Firestarter, a score that I still love to this day. Lately, there has been a lot of new synth groups and solo acts popping up and its popularity is evident by the craze and appreciation of the music behind Netflix’s sleeper hit, Stranger Things.
As you may know, the show used three of TD’s songs/compositions in its first season. Well, it looks like Tangerine Dream either dug the show or really dug the music by Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein (one-half of S U R V I V E) because Tangerine Dream just covered/paid tribute to the main theme of Stranger Things. Take a listen below.
It’s important to note that Tangerine Dream’s lineup has consistently changed. The founding member, Edgar Froese, passed on in January of last year. Now, Thorsten Quaeschning, Hoshiko Yamane and Ulrich Schnauss carry on under the moniker.
