Today’s music recommendations are all about the synths. Instrumental of course, because this is music for writing.
These artists aren’t necessarily soundtrack composers (although sometimes they are) but their electronic music creates a special dark atmospheric mood.
S U R V I V E
S U R V I V E is a dark synth group from Texas and two of the members are well known for creating the ‘Stranger Things’ TV series soundtrack. Their music reminds me of 80s horror films with a touch of early Depeche Mode.
Pentagram Home Video
I know very little about this band but their music and soundtracks create a sombre yet eerie backdrop for my writing.
Now Cryo Chamber is not an artist but a record label focusing on dark ambient music. Their YouTube channel features a whole bunch of curated playlists, releases and mixes for atmospheric writing or sleep.
If you’d like to listen to all my recommendations in one place, head to the Spotify playlist.
