Global streaming stars Aquilo today release their new single ‘Silent Movies’. The new single follows 2017’s ‘I Could Fight On A Wall’ and ‘Thin’ from ii (Side A), the first half of their highly-anticipated second album ii that they today announced will be released on May 4th and is available to preorder in CD and vinyl formats.

In November 2017, Aquilo made the bold decision to split their second album into two parts, releasing the first five-tracks of ii as the ii (Side A) EP. Aquilo are truly stars of the streaming age, with their tracks consistently amassing over a million streams. ii continues Aquilo’s progression from bedroom-based laptop producers to constant, inimitable innovators, and with two sold out London shows under their belts and a sixteen-date European tour to come, Aquilo are undoubtedly set for a massive 2018.

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 four 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 over two million monthly Spotify listeners, Aquilo are fast cementing themselves as one of the most exciting new prospects in pop.

Following two sold out dates at the Courtyard Theatre in London at the end of 2017, the pair are heading out on a huge European tour throughout March which concludes with a run of dates across the UK. Tickets are available for purchase here.
