By the sound of “Head Noise,” Aviator has some issues. The song, which is being given its debut here, is a standout track on the Boston band’s upcoming, debut album Head In The Clouds, Hands In The Dirt. It’s a pure, potent exercise in post-hardcore rage, all anguish and angularity—but there’s also a throat-catching edge to frontman TJ Copello’s hoarse holler that hints at a deeper, ingrown anger. It doesn’t exactly ease the mind, but it’s more reflective than its nervy noisiness might imply.
Head In The Clouds, Hands In The Dirt will be released August 19 via No Sleep Records.
