An epoch is defined as an extended period of time typically characterized by a distinctive development or by a memorable series of events, and Scott Hansen, leader of the band Tycho, has named their new album Epoch (Ghostly International) with that in mind. The last installment in a trilogy, Epoch is the culmination of more than a decades work that has seen the band evolving and maturing through two sublime releases Dive (2011) and Awake (2014), and developing from featuring Hansen as a delicate solo performer into the iconic frontman of a powerful multi-layered live band performing on the worlds largest stages.Dive was where the whole thing crystallized, said Hansen. I found that crossover space between what I was doing before, which was more IDM electronic stuff, and the rock music that reflected more of what I was listening to and not necessarily what I was making. Awake was a prototype of pushing it as far into the rock realm as I was comfortable with. Epoch is basically coming full circle. All the lessons of Dive and Awake were applied and then expanded upon.Epoch leverages the sonic aesthetic of Dives down-tempo vintage-style synthesizers and beautiful melodies while drawing on the kinetic energy of Awakes progressive composition and organic instrumentation. I felt like I explored a lot of open-ended unbridled, optimistic spaces with the other records. I dont know if its a reflection of my life, but it seemed like thats what just came out at the time. For the new record, the themes felt a bit darker as he explored new musical territory. My threshold for darkness is much lower. Things that seem dark to me seem happy and light to other people. I think its the darker sounds themselves. The timbres are a bit more aggressive.Hansen initially attempted a more traditional recording process at Panoramic Studios in Stinson Beach, CA, but ultimately opted to do the majority of the recording in his home studio in Berkeley following a temporary relocation from his home in
