Tycho Shares Com Truise Remix, Extended Tour Plans
Tycho - Awake (Original Mix) [Ghostly International]
Tycho - Awake (Com Truise Remix) [Ghostly International]

Tycho toasts to the success of its recent sold-out tour by sharing a remix from Ghostly International affiliate Com Truise (pictured), along with plans for a four-month victory lap around North America and Europe.

Awake is the title track from Tycho’s most recent LP, which saw the project expand from the solo electronic alias of Scott Hansen to a three-piece band with a live drummer. Hansen describes it as “the first true Tycho record”, and fans who made it out to one of the earlier tour dates can surely vouch for the group’s fully realized vision.

Com Truise was a no-brainer to remix the track. Tycho’s original mix registers more like post-rock than the ambient electronics upon which Hansen made his name, conveying the tranquil atmosphere of the cabin near Lake Tahoe where it was written; Truise, for his part, demonstrates an uncanny valley-like effect of synthetic machines imitating nature, and the overall effect is as beautiful as it is disconcerting.

Tycho’s Awake LP is out now via Ghostly. Dig the artwork for the remix below (designed by Hansen under his ISO50 alias), and check out the extended tour dates below that.
