Young & Sick: "House of Spirits"
I have to admit, there was a little disappointment when I first listened to this and the first NANO second turned out not to be Wayne Wonder's "No Letting Go". But don't let that put you off, because this track by LA based artist Young & Sick, is another example of the excellent and painfully up-to-date take on R&B slow jams invading the internet (See also: Two Inch Punch).
The production, though full of fuzzy reverb and those gloopy kinda outer space noises, is still restrained enough to allow the ever so sweet vocals to shine. In fact, the whole sound is so soft and mellow, you almost don't notice the lyrics are about drowning to death in a car with a broken heart. Cute!
