YOUNG & SICK

Young & Sick

2014-04-27

  Dutch artist, Nick VanHofwegan is better known for his visual art.  He has designed album covers for Foster the People, Maroon 5, and Robin Thicke.  His t-shirt designs are sold at Urban Outfitters.  His art is whimsical and energetic. Can one say the same for his audio art? Recording under the name Young & Sick, VanHofwegan makes danceable R&B with laid-back vocals and plenty of electronics.  All the parts are performed by VanHofwegan himself (except for the trumpet bits). 

This is electronic-pop/R&B that engages this listener.
