TYCHO

– New LP ‘Weather’ out today 
– Band shares new visualiser for title-track “Weather
– London show on 5th March at Printworks 

With their new LP out today via Mom + Pop Music x Ninja Tune, Tycho have shared a new visualiser for album title track “Weather”, created by frontman and graphic designer Scott Hansen aka ISO50.

Speaking on the release, Hansen said: “All my albums have been iterative, adding and building with each release. After Epoch I wanted to do something very different and break out of that cycle for a fresh perspective. Weather owes a lot to the earlier records and is a progression in its own way.  However it feels like something totally different and new to me. It’s the breath of fresh air that I needed.”

Tycho’s 2016’s GRAMMY® nominated, Billboard-topping album, ‘Epoch’ saw huge success for the San Francisco-based group, building to two sold out nights at London’s 1500-capacity Electric Brixton followed by a date at The Roundhouse. Now, the electronic music project unveils a wholly new iteration of sound with the release of their fifth studio album.

Longtime collaborators Zac Brown (bass/guitar) and Rory O’Connor (drums) and touring member Billy Kim (keyboards/guitar/bass) will join Hansen on the “Weather World Tour” which includes a headline show at London’s Printworks – details below. Saint Sinner will also join the live band on all dates as the first touring vocalist with Tycho, bringing a new energy to the show.

In many ways, Weather’ is the culmination of Tycho’s career as a whole – each prior step taken with intention to land on this new creative ground. The past 13 years have seen Tycho evolve from a part-time solo project of a graphic designer (Hansen is known internationally for his distinctive design work as ISO50) into a massively successful and world touring live band. The music, too, has fallen in line with this steep trajectory, and each release has introduced new elements to us, ever expanding into untouched sonic territory.

Hansen on the musical progression of Tycho through the years: “With each Tycho album my goal is to evolve and broaden the sound. After The Science of Patterns (2002) and Past is Prologue (2006) — two primarily electronic solo efforts — I began incorporating more organic sounds and instrumentation.  Dive (2011) saw the addition of guitar and bass guitar while Awake (2014) took it a step further with guitars pushed to the forefront and the use of live drum performances for the first time. Epoch (2016) honed that sound further balancing the electronic and organic components that defined Tycho.” ‘Weather’ intends to reveal a more human side to the music, with the vocal and lyrical components adding a whole new dimension of warmth and life.
