Tycho – the Grammy nominated electronic music project led by primary composer Scott Hansen – unveils a wholly new iteration of sound with the release of their fifth studio album, ‘Weather’, via Mom + Pop Music x Ninja Tune.
The highly anticipated release follows 2016’s ‘Epoch’ and diverges markedly from Tycho’s previous output with the introduction of vocal led tracks, while still maintaining the foundation of Hansen’s signature sound. New collaborator Hannah Cottrell, aka Saint Sinner, lends her voice to multiple tracks on the record and will join Tycho’s live band for the Weather World Tour.
Longtime collaborators Zac Brown (bass/guitar) and Rory O’Connor (drums) along with touring member Billy Kim (keyboards/guitar/bass) will join Hansen on the Weather World Tour. Saint Sinner will also join the live band on all dates as the first touring vocalist with Tycho as ‘Weather’ reveals a more human side to the live show with the new energy of a vocalist.
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 – led by primary composer and renowned graphic designer Scott Hansen – unveils a wholly new iteration of sound with the release of their fifth studio album.
The release marks a bold step forward for Tycho with the introduction of vocal led tracks – the first of which is streaming today. “Pink & Blue” combines the foundation of Hansen’s distinctive, vivid signature soundscapes with the delicate, velvety vocals of Hannah Cottrell, aka Saint Sinner, to luscious effect.
‘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.
