Tycho – Spectre
Scott Hansen, a.k.a. Tycho, came onto the scene in 2011 with the breakthrough release, Dive, which blended elements of ambient and chillwave, and drew comparisons to other blossoming acts of the time like Washed Out, Neon Indian, and Toro Y Moi. Now, Hansen is back with a follow-up LP, Awake, set to be released on March, 18th. Like most of these other acts, there has been a gradual shift towards instrumentation and a keen ear to how these new songs will translate in a live setting by Hansen. Two other tracks off of Awake have surfaced, “Awake” and “Montana,” and today a third, “Spectre,” came out. All 3 signify this shift with heavier drums and layered guitars that give deeper emotion and feeling to the music. Enjoy the latest below.
