Young & Sick "Bitter End"

Dutch multi-artist Young & Sick, AKA:Nick van Hofwegen, will release his new EP scheduled for a spring 2019 release via Neon Gold Records / B3SCI Records. Along with the news, Young & Sick has debuted, his new single “Bitter End.”

Young & Sick on “Bitter End”:

“Bitter end is a celebration of seeing things through completely. It’s looking back at a pretty wild year of countless obstacles and turbulent skies. Through the eyes of an unstoppable maniac.

Last January, Young & Sick released the EP, Ojai. Prior to that, he was chosen to cover Passion Pit’s “Sleepyhead” for the Neon Gold Records 10-Year Anniversary compilation. The track debuted with Stereogum here who described, “It’s still a fully electronic endeavor, but something about Nick van Hofwegen’s gentle treatment of the song reminds me of early Iron & Wine. Let me know if you hear where I’m coming from with that.”

Born in southern Holland, Nick attempted the traditional route of art through design school. Its cookie-cutter leanings led him to drop out in his first year and, at 20, he quit his 9-5 at a car parts factory in rural Holland and moved to London where, by a crux of fate, comedian Andy Dick came across a piece of his art. Nick’s friend Mark had introduced them about a week prior. Suddenly, Nick had his first client. Shortly after, Mark’s own band—a then little-known outfit by the name of Foster the People—asked Nick to do the artwork for their debut album Torches in 2011
