SONG OF THE DAY: TYCHO – “AWAKE”

The music we listen to oftentimes becomes the soundtrack of our lives – they become triggers to jog our memories, to remind us of where we’ve been, who we were with and where we wanted to go.

Graphic artist Scott Hansen – or better known as musician/producer Tycho – has finally released his first single from the follow-up LP to his 2011 release, Dive. The track, titled “Awake,” stays true to Tycho’s signature aesthetic that can be found simultaneously in his artwork and his music: clean, crisp layers that are meticulously strung together, almost to a fault.

Awake-1-450x450

Contrary to his mellowed-out Dive, “Awake” walks along the line of being the total opposite. The track’s stand out guitars and bass are bright, driven by the mid-tempo drums and floating melodies that remind us of warm July nights that we’re not quite ready to let go of yet. Hallelujah for Indian summers.
