Weird noise from walls when windy

Newly built home. The wind is predominantly blowing east and the wall that faces the wind direction often makes somewhat of a grinding noise. The best description would be that it sounds like as if the wood was moving and grinding against metal fasteners. I can feel it on the 1st and 2nd floors. The house is a brick finish. Any clue what it could be?

Nope, this is structural.

Are you able to capture the noise on your phone and post it online?

Gutter moves slightly upon strong wind and grind against the wall?

Never. No picture. No video. Just like a dozen other threads here on RFD.
It is a guessing game.
