“Weather”, the album coming July 12th. 8 tracks, 6 with vocals, 2 incredible instrumentals. By Tycho and Saint Sinner.
When setting out to record WEATHER I wanted to finally fulfill what had been a vision of mine since the beginning: to incorporate the most organic instrument of all, the human voice,” says Scott Hansen (Tycho). “While developing the initial concepts, I met Hannah Cottrell, aka Saint Sinner, and the vocal component of the album immediately came into focus. 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. It has been inspiring working with Hannah’s voice and hearing Tycho evolve into something that I had always hoped it someday would. My philosophy in life is that when you see a path clearly laid out you must follow it to see where it leads. As an artist you have to continuously challenge yourself and evolve to make genuine artistic statements. Looking back it’s clear that every step of the past 18 years has led to this moment and I couldn’t be happier with the result.”“‘Pink & Blue’ is a proper pop song, and a good one at that,” says Stereogum. “Like ‘Easy’, it features vocals from Saint Sinner, the singer born Hannah Cottrell. But this time, rather than merely adding atmospheric coos to Tycho’s electro-organic textures, she’s breathily intoning lovesick lyrics...Matched with a gently thwacking beat that calls back to early dubstep and eventually ambient synth-pop…”Out now are singles “Easy”, “Pink & Blue” and “Japan”.Tycho will embark on an extensensive WEATHER world tour spanning 2019 and 2020, including stops at the Sydney Opera House, Japan’s Fuji Rock Festival, both the Los Angeles and Berkeley Greek Theatres and Summerstage in Central Park, New York City.
