These guys bring back synthersizer music the way it should be done - analogue sounds and great electronic soundscapes. Perfect for rainy days, night driving, sleeping, gaming and many other situations. Most of all - they brought back the atmospheric journey-type feeling to this kind of music. That's something I've missed among the countless retro wave acts.

Experimental synth quartet S U R V I V E ' s sophomore full-length and Relapse debut is a dark, sweeping exercise in analog synth mastery. The pulsating, 9-song instrumental release showcases immense diversity between tracks - 'RR7349's compositions range from grim tom-tom thunder to space-age epics, pairing tense plodding grooves with meditative ambience and driving, rhythmic beats. Inspired by IDM and horror scores alike, 'RR7349' is simultaneously ominous and hopeful; tense and relaxed; percussive and melodic. Additionally, two of the group’s members recently scored the soundtrack for the hit new sci-fi / horror show Stranger Things on Netflix. 'RR7349' is a unique addition to the Relapse discography, and unquestionably S U R V I V E ' s best work to date.
