aquiloArtist: Aquilo
Release: Aquilo
Label: Believe Recordings
Genre: Dance – Dance -Electronica

Aquilo is the coming together of Tom and Ben, two musicians geographically located in what is perfectly exemplified in their music, the Lake District village of Silverdale. For those unfamiliar with the Lake District, the vast and open expansive landscapes can’t help but evoke a visual element of solitude and delicacy, it’s these components that feel so evident in Aquilo’s sound. Working together for the last couple of years, their mutual love of production and influential surroundings have developed a minimal electronic approach into their debut EP, which is set for release in April. Opening track ‘You There’ is very much a restrained statement of intent, from the opening bars of the piano and ambient backdrop, it sets out the measured pace of the EP.
