The Grammy Award nominated album Weather marked a new direction in Tycho’s evolution, which began with a producer in his bedroom, bloomed to encompass a live trio and eventually a full band with vocals.
Scott Hansen announced the latest chapter in the chronicles of Tycho with Stress, a glimpse at a forthcoming album that will connect the future with the past. As if to demonstrate, the EP features the cut “No Stress” featuring vocalist Saint Sinner from the Weather LP with a new official video. There is also the brilliant “Stress,” instrumental and evocative of Tycho’s best Awake-era productions, and a “literal instrumental version” of “No Stress” with vocals muted, intended to be “a bridge between the two interpretations.” Listen up:
The new album and Weather are designed to be “companion albums, explor[ing] the same core concepts from two totally different perspectives.”
The Stress EP is out today. And the new video for “No Stress” is below:
