Young & Sick – ‘Heartache Fetish’

Young & Sick – ‘Heartache Fetish’


One of the first bands I saw at my annual pilgrimage to Austin, Texas for the SXSW Festival (top 15 bands post here), were LA’s Young & Sick. You might know the main man Nick as the vocalist on Mmoths’ ‘For Her’ (he’s also an illustrator) but live, their music is a more Alt R&B-style affair with emphasis on harmony-lead crooning matched to some colourful yet delicate arrangements.

I was impressed by Nick and his three-piece band’s sound but I felt they lacked a big song to draw people in overall. ‘Heartache Fetish’ was probably the most memorable song of the night. Their debut LP is out next week on Harvest Records.

‘Glass’ also features on the album:
