Tycho shares Single, LP out 3/18 on Ghostly

Tycho shares new single from his upcoming album "Awake", out on 3/18 on Ghostly International. Tycho will this this spring, starting 3/19 in Santa Cruz, CA.


For nearly a decade, Tycho has been known as the musical alias of Scott Hansen, but with the release of Awake – his second LP for Ghostly International set for release on March 18th – the solo project has evolved into a three-piece band. Reaching an entirely new realm of sonic possibilities recording with a live band,  Awake is situated in the present, reaching Hansen’s vision of Tycho like never before.

“This is, in many ways, the first true Tycho record,” according to Hansen. Following 2011’s Dive LP, the San Francisco, California based designer toured extensively, accompanied by a full band on stage, his sound coalesced into a percussive, organic whole. Zac Brown (guitars, bass) continued to join Scott on the road, but it was the particular addition of Rory O’Connor’s (Com Truise, Nitemoves) live drumming that ultimately sent Hansen back to the studio with a more precise vision for the future Tycho. “After the tour, I decided that I wanted to capture the more energetic, driven sound of the live show on the next album,” Hansen recalls. Bringing musicians into Tycho’s creative process was a step towards expanding his own songwriting and advancing the project beyond its current incarnation.

Also known for his design work as ISO50, Hansen’s visual and sonic efforts have dovetailed throughout the course of his career. “This is the first time in my life I’ve dropped everything to focus on one artistic pursuit,” notes Hansen.
