Turn on instant-summertime vibes with San Francisco-based Tycho’s new album Weather, released through Mom+Pop x Ninjatune. After taking a year-long hiatus from touring to work on the new album, Tycho (aka Scott Hansen) is back with a new addition to the musical mix.
Departing from previous instrumental releases like 2016 GrammyAward nominated album Epoch, Tycho’s fifth studio release Weather presents a collection of eight vocal-driven tracks featuring Saint Sinner (aka Hannah Cottell). From the first notes of “Pink & Blue”, you’re invited on a palatable journey through Tycho’s signature sound complimented by Saint Sinner’s silky vocals.
Coming home from “Japan” back “Into The Woods”, Tycho’s layered instrumentals shine. Swirling guitars paired with sugary sweet vocals by Saint Sinner soar on high spirits. Title track “Weather” closes out the album with the Tycho sound we’ve come to know and love. Grooving bass lines underlying hazy synths provide the perfect soundtrack to a summertime daydream.
When asked about the musical journey of Tycho, Scott Hansen claims “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.”
