Island Records

Aquilo

Hailing from the Lake District, Tom Higham and Ben Fletcher first introduced themselves back in 2014 with their larger than life cinematic sound, and have since released three EPs and debut album Silhouettes; produced by highly regarded Icelandic producer Ólafur Arnalds and the ever brilliant SOHN. With tracks ‘Silhouette’, ‘Sorry’, ‘You There’, ‘Losing You’ and ‘Never Hurt Again’ gaining well over  110 million plays on Spotify alone.

 

The first new song to be heard since debut album Silhouettes was released in January of this year, ‘I Could Fight On A Wall’ is the culmination of the band’s experiences of life on the road over past months and a taste of what’s to come as they further explore the dreamy electronic pop they’ve become known and loved for.

Tom and Ben of Aquilo say of the song, “We’d both spent a lot of time in America after releasing the first record. There were a few life changes we’d had to go through and we suppose in turn a lot of inspiration came from the same place. ‘I Could Fight On A Wall’ marks both of us finding confidence again through people we’d grown close to over that year. We don’t find ourselves writing positive songs often but for some reason this just came around.”

In 2016, the pair embarked on their biggest UK tour to date, including a sold out Scala show, and a North American tour run with Låpsley.  Now with an ever growing US fan base they return Stateside this October for a near sold out run of dates with much more to come in the next few months.
