Young Culture, the three-piece alternative rock band from Albany, NY, is back and ready for summer with their new feel-good track, “Hum”. After spending nearly every Sunday during the pandemic brainstorming and writing together, childhood friends Alex Magnan (vocals), Gabe Pietrafesa (guitar), and Troy Burchett (guitar) were ready to share the found happiness and love that many people are now being able to experience once again.
Because the pandemic forced them to take a different approach to the recording process, the group recorded “Hum” in a true DIY fashion. After tracking the single at an old friend’s studio in Albany, it was then passed onto long-time friends of the band, Derek DiScanio of State Champs and Sam Guaiana, to produce, and Gabe’s brother, Tony Pietrafesa, to engineer. It became clear that the connection between the guys grew even greater during those Sunday sessions when it didn’t take long to polish off this fun and loving pop rock song. “It felt good to be able to see that we can do this on our own and have it come out like this,” Gabe commented.
Filled with catchy riffs and feel-good instrumentals, “Hum” touches on how fun it feels to be in love. The lyrics portray a relatable story that alludes to feelings of both a nostalgic past and a hopeful future no matter who the listener is. Young Culture had so much fun making this song and they are very eager to kick off this summer with some positivity and love for anyone who will listen.
