Tycho unwinds with ethereal EP, ‘Stress’
Tycho has unveiled his newest EP, Stress, in all its atmospheric glory via Mom + Pop/Ninja Tune. A master of ambient textures, the Epoch producer delivered his fifth studio album Weather earlier this summer in a compelling vocal-centric integration by way of Saint Sinner. The latest three-tracker features a brand new single, “Stress,” the Grammy-nominated artist collaborative track with Saint Sinner “No Stress” from Weather, and the accompanying instrumental.
According to Tycho, Stress serves as previous LP Weather‘s companion album.
“The albums explore the same core concepts from two totally different perspectives. Stress builds on the foundation of ‘No Stress’ and expands into new spaces, further defining the message of the song,” Tycho posted on social media.
The Stress EP gifts two conversely titled tracks boasting ethereal soundscapes reminiscent of Tycho’s warm downtempo stylings. Titular track “Stress” offers up blooming instrumentals and soft vocals while “No Stress” pairs Saint Sinner’s soothing qualities with expansive bliss.
