Boston-based Air Traffic Controller began when singer/songwriter Dave Munro, a real life air traffic controller in the Navy, released a four-track demo during his service. Since the release of that demo, the band has grown to be an indie tour de force, garnering an incredible amount of media attention and critical praise over the past few years. Air Traffic Controller creates a clean, pop-infused brand of indie rock, with the band itself citing Cat Stevens and Paul Simon as major influences. The band released its second full-length album, "Nordo," in 2012.
Air Traffic Controller performs with Mochester on Friday, February 14, 8 p.m. at Lovin' Cup Bistro, 300 Park Point Drive. $5-$7. lovincup.com.
