Aquilo – Aquilo EP

Aquilo are a Silverdale duo consisting of Tom Higham and Ben Fletcher, two 20-year-old guys who live as next-door neighbors since they were kids. We don’t know how they moved from their own respective hard-rock bands to this kind of electro-tinged pop/nu-R&B that made everybody refer to them as the new London Grammar, but it sounds so very good to our ears.

Their debut 4-track self-titled EP – that was released on April 7th – is made of a minimalisic, atmospheric dream-pop with smooth vocals and an electronic touch that could fill the niche between The Antlers and The xx.

Aquilo are signed to London-based Twist Management, together with other outstanding new acts like SOHN and Låpsley.
