Austin-based minimalist synth weirdos Survive make the kind of music that you’d expect to hear in the background of an apocalyptic sci-fi or horror movie. Electro-ambient pulses and beats form maddeningly suspenseful patterns that become tangled in each other and find release in patiently constructed, and often surprisingly cathartic, resolutions. Coupled with the power of Paper Tiger’s impeccable sound system, Survive’s set, like a soundtrack to your aimlessness and disillusionment, should be a veritable out-of-body experience.
