Tycho – Division

My brother introduced me to Tycho but the album Dive just rubbed me the wrong way for some reason. It’s ambient electronica sound just reminded me of the soundtrack to The Sims, it’s relaxing sure but doesn’t exactly invoke anything in me (which I know is the point of Tycho’s music) but nothing from this album was memorable for me. Then when I realised that I had to read a ton of books for school and that music with lyrics were too distracting, I gave Tycho another go and listened to his next album Awake and it was a direction that I could get on board with. There were post-rock moments in Awake that were much more engaging and interesting for me. It seems that Tycho is going to continue in this direction with this track ‘Division’. The track is dynamic with some serious drum beats and outstanding synths accompanied with scintillating guitar lines. All that and with just a touch of an edge. Doesn’t harsh your mellow, but doesn’t just fall into the background either.
