Music's “Next Hype” Young & Sick To Perform Tuesday in Brooklyn

Young & Sick, the LA/NYC based art project that has had the Internet buzzing in recent weeks, is set to perform Tuesday (2/4) in Williamsburg at Baby’s All Right.

The group, recently named by BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe as the music world’s “Next Hype”, recently announced their first tour dates, including Brooklyn as well as the highly sought Coachella Music Festival. Tuesday at Baby’s All Right they are joined by fellow Brooklyn group Yellerkin.

The show should be an “unveiling” of sorts, as the identity of Young & Sick is still in debate. Thus far no official press photos showing the band have emerged, and the music itself leaves questions to the size and gender of the group. Despite this, the act is clearly well connected in the celebrity world, boasting art commissions from Maroon 5, Robin Thicke, Jerry Stiller, Andy Dick, and other known entertainers. Recently Young & Sick created the largest album cover ever in coordination with Foster the People’s sophomore album release, Supermodel. The mural sized in at over 148 ft X 126 ft and was recently featured by Rolling Stone Magazine.

Musically, Young & Sick has been riding a wave that is the resurgence of soul and R&B. In the wake of artists such as James Blake, Frank Ocean, and Jeremih, Young & Sick clearly pushes the boundaries of the sound taking harmonious cues from the late 60s. The sound truly stands apart, and this has not gone without notice from the music community, scoring profiles on music's tastemaker sites including Pitchfork, Noisey, Fader, and Stereogum, which recently named Young & Sick a "Band to Watch."

Between the artwork, the music, and the mystery, Young & Sick has become and Internet force to reckon with. Or as the Belgium-based music blog Disco Naïveté summarized:

“Just a simple glance on Young & Sick tells you you’re dealing with something so much more than “just music.” Y&S is an art project in every meaning of the word, both artwork-wise and music-wise. The one-man LA-based wonder boy brings alive a palette of wistful, incredibly light but moody spirit-themed bedroom r&b.”

Fans of true art or passionate R&B should find much to love in the project at the show on Tuesday. A representative from Baby’s All Right said early Monday pre-order tickets are almost sold out, but there should be some available the day of the show.
