There’s no denying the big influence that the music of Stranger Issues has had on the hit Netflix show that entirely capitalizes on 80s nostalgia in the ideal way doable. The score completed by Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein of the electronic outfit S U R V I V E’s complement the show to perfection and is an undeniable big element to its achievement. The pair have only brought a handful of reside performances anyplace, let alone right here in the U.S., which created their efficiency of the Stranger Issues music reside with each other at Brooklyn Steel on October 19th such an intriguing proposition.
Going into the show, I didn’t know very what to anticipate from the efficiency and was shocked to see the stage of Brooklyn Steel altered with the stage lights hanging only a couple of feet above exactly where they’d be positioned, with electrical wire draped across the stage to sort of replicate Joyce Byers’ household for the duration of the very first season. Outdoors of tons of fog and moody red and saturated lighting, there wasn’t also a lot production to be had, only Dixon and Stein on stage performing the evocative score of the show. There have been several moments that overwhelmed the senses and had you lost in a trance-like state, but it also would’ve helped to have a bit much more visual stimulation to genuinely bring the show to an even much more heightened state.
Nonetheless, it was cool to get to practical experience seeing the duo bring these songs to life like this, specifically taking into consideration how restricted the tour dates are.
