Austin’s suddenly-anointed synth rock kingpins S U R V I V E, whose title track and other key musical elements served as creepy scene-setters for the hit Netflix show “Stranger Things,” debuted a track off their upcoming release“RR7349” via NPR’s Songs We Love this week. The song, “Wardenclyffe,” is a sinisterly synth-scaped hero’s journey with an everpresent undercurrent of lurking chaos. You know, the kind of song that just might send you inadvertently tumbling into another dimension.

The album, which Chad Swiatecki describes as  “a suite of nine menacing and moody tracks propelled by a small army of synthesizers, drum machines and other related electronic music gear,” drops on Sept. 30. The band will celebrate the release that night at Barracuda before setting off for a U.S. tour.
