In 2016 I started to enjoy spending a lot of my free time reading, which resulted in more appreciation for instrumental music. It’s so much easier to have tunes going while you’re reading if there’s no words to the music to distract you from the words in the book.

I’ve loved synth music for several years now, so a four piece synth band definitely caught my attention and appreciation from the beginning. Two members of S U R V I V E are responsible for the soundtrack to Netflix’s popular Stranger Things series, without which I probably never would have known of these guys. Take a listen to my favorite song from their album RR7349.
