Taking the blogsphere by storm, Young and Sick have quickly made a name for themselves. This NY/LA based RnB outfit amassed close to 500,000 plays on their hit single, “Heartache Fetish” and have had the pleasure of hitting some extremely notable venues since then (ahem, Coachella.)
As we get ready to bring them in for a show in Denver, we wanted to get to know this brand new act a little better. Check out what lead man Nick had to say about his Dad’s old records, Sriracha, and his silky smooth voice.
TMN: We’re talking with Nick from Young and Sick. Thanks for taking a few minutes to speak with us today.
Y&S: Of course.
TMN: First off, we have to admit something. We tried so hard to get to your set at Coachella, but were struggling a little bit from the previous night’s festivities. How did that go for you?
Y&S: I believe it, it was early! But, it went well. It was kind of a different experience on both weekends. The second weekend, on Friday we opened for Foster the People in Vegas at the Cosmopolitan hotel, after which we had to drive through the night to make it for our 8AM load in. It was interesting.
TMN: Sounds pretty rough!
Y&S: It was great though. We had so much fun.
TMN: While we’re sure there were plenty of people like us, they can rest easy as you guys are about to head out on a pretty significant tour. Talk to us about which cities you’re most looking forward to.
Y&S: Actually, I’m very much looking forward to all of them. Not to sound cheesy, but I have not seen enough of the US, seeing as how I’ve only been living here for a little while. I’m interested to explore all the states, and especially some of the small towns in between. I’ve also heard the most amazing things about Chicago, and I think that’s one of the ones that I’m most looking forward to.
TMN: Speaking of your tour spots, we’re honored to be sponsoring your show here in Denver at Lost Lake. Is there anything you’d like to say to our Denver ninjas?
Y&S: You guys are so lucky to live in such a luscious state with so much beautiful forests around you. You should get out and explore!
