Grammy nominated ‘Stranger Things’ composers and S
U R V I V E members Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein
return to score three part British drama ‘Butterfly’.
Housed in a heavyweight spined sleeve and pressed

“We had just come off our first project that had
established us as these retrosynth/80s producers, and
we wanted to do something that helped get us out of
that box,” Dixon and Stein said in a press release.
“Obviously there are still synths being used, and
coincidentally some of them are from the 80s, but
hopefully this score won’t be received as such.”
The music to ‘Butterfly’ sustains Kyle Dixon and
Michael Stein’s proclivity for locating humanism in their
electronics. The signals they send have some sort of
uncanny correlation with core feelings. More uncanny
is their tonal grasp of what it is to be young and
‘Butterfly’ is the story of 11-year-old Max who
identifies as a girl and wants to live her life as Maxine.
Her estranged parents Vicky and Stephen attempt to
work out how best to cope with and support this huge
LP includes digital download code.
