Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein Win Emmy for "Stranger Things" Theme

Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein of the band S U R V I V E have been awarded the "Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music" Emmy for their theme song from the hit Netflix series, Stranger Things.

The award was given as part of the Creative Arts Emmy presentation last night, which runs a week ahead of the main primetime event on September 17th. The nomination for the team is one of 18 earned by Stranger Things this year.

While Stranger Things was a smash hit by any measure, it struck a particular resonance within the synth community for its use of quintessential '80s synth tones to match the setting and art direction of the series.

S UR V I V E gave keynote performance at this year's Moogfest, where they provided a live accompaniment to the first episode of the series. The band is slated to provide the soundtrack for the second season of the the series, which comes out in October.
