"I have slowly become addicted to this band. I find myself traipsing between sweaty muggy venues, braving the standard Glasgow rain, wind and sleet to see this band, just to receive that thirty minutes of brilliance when Young Aviators take to the stage. An undeniable energy that consumes the room, engulfing every spectator with lightning paced guitars, shotgun drums, and trapping bass that immediately hypnotises every body in the room until nods are heading and bodies are dancing. They are the sound of a bank robbery in progress; adrenalin rushed faces, bells ringing, and warning shots fired into the ceiling before jumping into the car for a speedy getaway. Formed from the ashes of the Black Alley Screens, Young Aviators have taken the sound of their violent indie rock, and driven it into an even more instinctual ground. A refined sound cultivated for a Neanderthal's soul, the music drives past the mind and drills into your heart and feet where your blood pumps and you stomp your erratically danced energy into the floor. You don't have a choice or time to think how to react, the tingling sensation in your fingertips and tapping feet tell you that. Formed four years ago under the banner of a previous band, the three Friends at school originally formed in Warrenpoint in Northern Ireland, before moving to Glasgow in 2006. They have spent years gaining experience and honing their sound, picking up gigs along the side of Nine Black Alps, The Long Blondes and The Fratellis. Now older, they have moved on from the days of student hedonism and fallen into the gritty reality of life. Focusing their niche, the band have left behind their old sounds and embarked on a new formula - combining indie-grunge-disco with three part harmonies, with a beautifully tight rhythm section and passionate drawn lyrics. This band are the complete package. When I want to dance I shove on the rhythms of High Fives Have No Future, when I feel angry I put on the chant of Into The Black Black Sea, when you want to let out energy there is no better way than to listen to the scream in Good Morning Consumers, and if I want to smile every time I see them live they make me laugh harder than most of the best comedians about. It's almost ironic how hooked on this band I have become, when in their own words, they only formed a band because 'it was that or take up heroin'. "
