Young Culture continue their upwards trajectory with the release of their self-titled debut full-length record. Due to hit streaming services and store shelves on October 16, 2020 via Equal Vision Records, the effort is a huge step forward for the band.
After a number of EPs in recent years, Young Culture’s progression is indisputable across the 10 tracks that make up the full-length. Young Culture are like the prospect who has paid their dues in the minors and is now ready for the big leagues. The fundamentals and talent have always been there, and they will now shine for an expanded audience.
The trio, comprised of upstate New York natives Alex Magnan and Gabe Pietrafesa along with Troy Burchett who calls Kentucky home, have been committed to clearing the hurdles that these geographic challenges present and is now paying off as Young Culture continues to gain momentum. Just when it appears the best track on the album has been experienced, the one that follows levels things up.
“Anywhere I Go, I’m Taking You With Me” and “Better Off As Friends” highlight expert songwriting while the ballad that is “I’ll Be There,” along with others, leave it almost unbelievable that Young Culture shared the stage with END, viral sensations Harm’s Way and Counterparts in December of 2018. Yet, this fact illustrates that Young Culture has been willing to play anywhere and everywhere in order to develop and break through. The result is this LP, which will undoubtedly find its way onto numerous top 10 lists for 2020.
