Aquilo announce new music & UK tour dates

ii (Side A) OUT NOW




Global streaming stars Aquilo have released ii (Side A), a five-track EP which forms the first half of their new album with Side B to follow in 2018. Featuring singles ‘I Could Fight On A Wall’ and ‘Thin’, ii (Side A) continues Aquilo’s progression from bedroom-based laptop producers to constant, inimitable innovators.


With two sold out London shows under their belts and the first two tracks from Side A having already amassed over two million streams on Spotify alone, Aquilo bring us the new single ‘Who Are You’. Premiering on BBC Radio 1, the video for the song is the first to feature both Tom and Ben and was filmed in one continuous shot in Joshua Tree National Park.

The five tracks released today as part of ii (Side A) marks the bold decision to split the album into two halves and is Aquilo’s unique way of staying in tune with the streaming age. “We’re doing things differently,” explains Ben. “Streaming has changed how we all consume music. We still love the album format, but it definitely needs updating. Releasing an album in two halves is our way of doing that.”

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 much critical praise, solid radio support and almost two million monthly Spotify listeners, Aquilo are fast cementing themselves as one of the most exciting new prospects in pop.
