Aquilo

Aquilo – who first introduced themselves back in 2014 with their inimitable and beautifully cinematic sound – have spent the last 2 years going from strength to strength. A handful of widely acclaimed EP’s have seen them garner an impressive and dedicated following both with fans, and also in the Film and TV world. The past couple of years has seen a range of Aquilo’s songs included in TV ads, film trailers and major TV shows including Vampire Diaries, Greys Anatomy, Pretty Little Liars and more. Their EP’s alone have already racked up over 50 million streams on Spotify.

The duo grew up living directly across the road from each other in the small picturesque village of Silverdale, but ironically due to being in different school years never really got to know each other until one discovered the others music on Soundcloud. The music they now create together is essentially musical incarnations of the incredible scenery that has surrounded them all their lives, with undertones of the music that has influenced them both growing up.

Having produced the majority of their own material along the way, when it came to the album they were incredibly honoured to also work alongside the brilliant SOHN as well as spending some time in the equally inspiring landscape of Iceland with the hugely talented Ólafur Arnalds, both of whom feature on a selection of the albums songs as producers.

Aquilo have just completed their biggest UK tour to date which took in a sold out Scala show (they’ve steadily grown their London fan base going from headline shows at St Pancras Old Church to Wilton’s Music Hall to Village Underground to Scala in under 2 years off the back of a few EP’s). They have also recently completed a tour of North America supporting Låpsley and will be back for more UK shows in 2017.
