SURVIVE has had an incredible past two years. The Austin synth band received two Grammy Awards nominations and an Emmy for ‘Most Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music’ on their divergently genius composition that features as the title sequence for the world-wide famous Netflix series, Stranger Things. The band has also been a part of A Message from Earth, creating otherworldly music in celebration of the Voyager Golden Record turning 40 this past December.
