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 2000-capacity Electric Brixton followed by a date at The Roundhouse. Today, Tycho give a first glimpse at new material with brand new track “Easy.”
“Easy” is available now on Mom + Pop Music x Ninja Tune and sees Tycho’s trademark vibrant, cinematic electronics topped with hushed vocal descants, adding a new layer of instrumentation and hinting at a new direction for their next chapter, which is set to unfold over the summer of 2019. “Music can transport us to other realities but can also ground us firmly within ourselves” says Scott Hansen, Tycho’s primary composer, songwriter and producer. “After a trilogy of records spent exploring the outer reaches of experience I am focusing inward to reveal a human side to the music.”
“The past 13 years have seen Tycho evolve from the part-time solo project of a graphic designer into a band that achieved things far beyond any of our wildest expectations” he continues. “My journey as an artist has been defined by an iterative cycle with each album building on and refining an overarching vision. ‘Easy’ is about coming to terms with my past and defining a clear vision moving forward. It’s a comforting voice that reminds you not to get so lost in the work, but to take it easy and enjoy the ride. ‘Easy’ is the bridge to the future.”
With a hugely impressive 1.3 million album sales under their belt, Tycho are the Grammy nominated electronic music project led by Scott Hansen. Respected for both their music output and Scott’s graphic design work under the ISO50 moniker, Tycho have produced and released a hugely successful back catalogue. In 2010 Hansen formed a live band and since then Tycho has toured extensively, performing at some of the most revered stages around the world – Coachella (2x), SXSW (Pitchfork stage), Field Day, Primavera (2x), Latitude, Bonnaroo, Outside Lands and many more. Tycho have been supported by Khruangbin, Todd Terje and Sylvan Esso, and have opened for an array of amazing artists including The XX, Alt-J, Little Dragon, Skrillex and The Flaming Lips. They have been remixed by Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith and Bibio and, in turn, have reworked tracks by Little Dragon, Maggie Rogers and ODESZA.
