Before watching their video for “Beau Monde,” the only thing I’d heard from the Airplane Boys was their name. But, thanks to a stop by OnSmash and a screenshot of this Toronto group cruising around in a Delorean, I had no choice but to see what the fuss was all about.
From the looks of this visual off their Alignment mixtape, this collective has conjured up a thorough single that’s bound to attract fans like a magnet. Carried by bellowing production from DJA that sounds like it could be played outside Oz’s green temple, these ruffians rock out with interchangeable fast-flows and a hook that could stick in your head for hours if you’re not careful. Actually, they’ve got pretty much all the basics covered quite well, with the exception of the fact they use them to deliver a typical this-is-why-I’m-hot-and-your-not concept that screams for more.
However, seeing as this was only my first spin around the block with The Boys, I’m sure they’ve displayed their fair share of depth to get them this far. But, before I jump to conclusions, I’m going to stroll through their website and see if their Alignment tape steers me in the right direction.
