Track Review: Tycho - 'Awake'

Man of many talents, Scott Hansen, takes a break from graphic art and updating his minimalist design blog, ISO50, to follow up his ambient projects dreamy 2011 release ‘Dive’.

‘Awake’ is the first single to be released from Tycho’s forthcoming LP expected next year. It features everything you’d expect and want from a Tycho track: warmth, depth, and atmosphere. ’Awake’ perfectly demonstrates Hansen’s ability to create a visceral experience as this (unusually) guitar driven tranquil landscape of a track manages to evoke a longing nostalgic feeling for a coastal life I am yet to live.
