Tycho has songs you can look up the lyrics to now and I ain’t even mad tbh.

That’s right!

On the heels of the album announcement, the band has shared a brand new track, “Pink & Blue”, along with an accompanying video. Following up what we now know as the lead track on the album, “Easy”, this new track features what Tycho brainchild Scott Hansen refers to as, “the most organic instrument of all, the human voice”, better known to the world as Saint Sinner (born Hannah Cottrell).

As he explained, "It has been inspiring working with Hannah's voice and hearing Tycho evolve into something that I had always hoped it someday would. [….] Our initial sessions were incredibly productive and I strongly identified with the imagery in her lyrics. Her vision folded effortlessly into mine and her voice integrated seamlessly into the sonic landscape opening new spaces for me as a songwriter and producer.”

I’ll admit, it’s going to take a little getting used to with this new “'instrument” in play, but mostly because I’m so used to getting lost in all of the delicate synth movements. With Saint Sinner being added to the mix, the focus is shifting ever so slightly, but int he best possible way.

Offering some insight behind the lyrics to the song, Saint Sinner shared, "The lines, ‘Oh, pink and blue, you know I look good on you’, originally stemmed from when I was romantically involved with a man and a woman simultaneously, for the first time in my life." She continued, "It was a defining moment for me. I went from being a young religious kid who thought she would marry a man to a young woman who realized her love for women. I now found myself, somewhere in the middle, leaning more closely to women. 'Pink & Blue' is a love song to no one, to everyone, and to myself. It's a sweet reminder to all lovers to hold onto their love with open arms; to be fearless about any type of love and to be fearless about losing their love. Love is never lost."

Hansen added, “Looking back, it's clear that every step of the past 18 years has lead to this moment and I couldn't be happier with the result."

OH AND THERE’S A TOUR ON THE HORIZON! The Weather World Tour kicks off in July on the other side of the world before heading to North America in September, and then finally making their way through Europe.

[SONG OF THE DAY] Tycho - "Easy (feat. Saint Sinner)"
tycho2019

Friday. Vibe O’Clock. Let’s fuckin GO.

Earlier in the week electro-zen masters Tycho revealed that they have plans to release a new album this year on their newfound home Mom + Pop Records after a long love-filled relationship with Ghostly International. On the heels of the announcement the band also shared a brand new track, “Easy”, featuring Saint Sinner.

Speaking on the track, primary composer, songwriter, and producer Scott Hansen said, "Music can transport us to other realities but can also ground us firmly within ourselves, after a trilogy of records spent exploring the outer reaches of experience I am focusing inward to reveal a human side to the music."

He continued, "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."

THE. BRIDGE. TO. THE. FUTURE.

Between Hyperspace and this new record (details TBA), the future looks very very fucking good.

OH PS did I mention they have some mind boggling shows coming up (not in the US of course ugh ugh ugh). I would probably sell a couple of organs to see them at the Sydney Opera House. CAN YOU IMAGINE!? 😍😍😍
