Yesterday (April 17, 2019), San Francisco-based Tycho released a new single titled ‘Easy’. It is available now on Mom + Pop Music x Ninja Tune. If you haven’t heard it yet, expect 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. Listening to it a couple of times already, if you’re a Tycho fan in short you won’t be disappointed. It adds those elements expected and a subtle yet inviting beat.
“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.”
