Noise Exclusive: Hear Pop-Punk Newcomers Young Culture Embrace Young Love With Infectious Single “Pure Gold”


Look, we understand the month of October is supposed to be about things dark, spooky and grim. We totally get it. However, just in case you need a break from vampires, ghosts and ghouls, we have an infectious new love song from emerging pop-punk outfit Young Culture titled “Pure Gold.”

“’Pure Gold’ was a song I wrote right after we recorded our first EP called You when I was about 16,” explains vocalist Alex Magnan. “I wrote it about a girl that I had feelings for who ended up moving pretty far away and it’s about how I felt things were gonna be after. I knew this song had to make it onto our second release when I wrote it. It’s definitely the most youthful, adolescent track on the EP.” 

“Putting together ‘Pure Gold’ in the studio was a lot of fun, considering it is one of the more poppier songs we have on the EP,” adds guitarist Gabe Pietrafesa. “We spent a lot of time messing around with different sounds and instruments finding the right ones that fit the vibe. We did this record with Seth Henderson at Always Be Genius Studios and we had our friend Derek DiScanio from State Champs come and produce the EP so every day in the studio was really fun with those guys.”
