Young Culture take on the A-Z challenge!

Our A-Z challenge is a fun way to get to know the upcoming talent across the world! Up next, we have Young Culture, who are celebrating the release of their record (This Is) Heaven!


A song that made you want to make music?

Grand Theft AutumnFall Out Boy

Best rider you’ve had?

A lot of beer

Craziest moment you’ve experienced in the band?

One time in southern texas a crazy, drugged out lady followed our van to like 3 gas stations

Deepest lyric one of your songs features?

“looking up at you now / because you’re heaven sent but your halo’s down”

Easiest song you wrote?

Fidelity off our first EP

Favourite song in your set?

Deluxe, first track off (This Is) Heaven



Guest you’d most like to feature on your record?

Travis Scott

Hardest thing about being a band?

Being away from family for sure

Interesting fact about one of your members?

Gabe actually hates the movie Pulp Fiction

Jokes you have in the band?

Can’t really think of one specifically but we regularly quote Nick Colletti videos

Key to writing a song?

Finding a solid chord progression

Longest distance you’ve travelled to play a show?

15 hours to a Dallas show pretty sure



Most inspiring musician you’ve experienced?

Probably working with Derek DiScanio. He’s been such an inspiration for me as a writer. I’ve learned so much just from being in the studio with him.

New band you’d recommend?

They aren’t new but they’re just starting to pick up some real steam…Everyone listen to Kayak Jones!

Opening for this band would be ideal?

State Champs! We’ve done some shows before but a full tour would be perfect.

Place you’d most like to tour?


Quote you’d like to pass on to our readers?

Be kind.

Reason for the title of your recent/forthcoming release?

The title for (This Is) Heaven really comes from the feeling it gave us to finally put this record out. Alex wrote a lot about some difficult times during the last year of his life. Putting out these new songs really feels like heaven.


See us live at?

The whole west coast next week! We are on tour with The Happy Alright

The old days of music were better than the current, do you agree?

No, the classics are great, but music is still progressing and developing new ideas

Unusual merchandise?

Our photo book! Designed by the wonderful Danny DeRusso

Variations you’d like to do on any of your songs?

Instead of ever doing an acoustic EP, I think it would be awesome if we did some reimagined songs with all of our pop/rap influences.

What do your fans mean to you?

Everything! Them and our friends who support us in any way, we couldn’t do this without you.

X-rays or any treatments needed for band related injuries?

Brain scan to see if there’s any activity in Gabe’s head.

You’re late for a show, whose fault is it?

The rest of band’s because they made me stop driving so they could pee

Zoo animal that best describes the personality of your band?

A liger. No comment.
