Steve from Stranger Things is pretty cool — the coolest, some (excluding Jonathan, who’s probably still pretty peeved about that whole camera incident) might say. So it only makes sense that the actor that plays him, Joe Keery, is the drummer in a very chill rock band called Post Animal.

Post Animal is based in Chicago, and Keery’s described it to the Wall Street Journal as “a project with your best friends and another way to be artistically active.”

Keery isn’t the only Stranger Things cast member with musical talent: Millie Bobby Brown, who plays the mysterious Eleven, has recorded herself singing hits like John Lennon’s “Imagine” and John Legend’s “All of Me” for her YouTube channel, and Finn Wolfhard — a.k.a. sweet Mike — recently posted a video of himself playing the opening chords to Nirvana’s “Lithium” on the guitar.

Check out some of their tracks — along with photos of Keery in his musical element — below. Hear more music over at their Bandcamp page.
