Release video for ‘Silhouette’
Part II of ‘Silhouettes’ video trilogy
Debut album released January 27th on Island
“Spellbinding, cinematic pop” – Mixmag 8/10
Last week, Aquilo unveiled the first instalment of the Silhouettes Trilogy, a series of videos taken from their debut album of the same name, released January 27th on Island. Today, they return with part two of the narrative linked trilogy with the video for album title track ‘Silhouette’.
The video for the haunting, cinematic song, written and produced by the duo (while other tracks on the album feature production contributions from SOHN and Ólafur Arnalds), focuses on the character played by Perry Benson, known for his roles in This Is England and Sid & Nancy. He is joined by young actor Ruairi O’Connor (What Richard Did, Handsome Devil) and newcomer Emily Reid.
The videos see Aquilo reuniting with UK Music Video Awards-winning director Eoin Glaister, responsible for their videos for ‘I Gave It All’ and ‘Losing You’. It will culminate with a special director’s cut, connecting the three segments into a seamless short film, beautifully soundtracked by Aquilo.
