AQUILO TO MAKE NATIONAL TELEVISION DEBUT ON “LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS” MARCH 22

Aquilo will perform on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” on Wednesday, March 22. The appearance marks the U.K. duo’s U.S. television debut. Aquilo’s upcoming headline dates include a sold-out show at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, CA (March 13) and a concert at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom (March 20). The duo will also perform at the KCRW, BBC, Get Buzzed and Universal Music Group showcases at SXSW. See below for itinerary and ticket information. Listen to Aquilo’s recent performance on KCRW’s “Morning Becomes Eclectic” HERE.

Rolling Stone described Aquilo’s sound as “Justin Timberlake trying to out-falsetto Jeff Buckley’s in an ambient synth rainstorm: Pop has rarely been this emotionally unashamed since the days Spandau Ballet.” Billboard hailed the duo’s debut album, Silhouettes (Harvest) as “14-tracks of pure ethereal bliss” and MixMag awarded it an 8/10 rating, praising its “spellbinding, cinematic pop.” Du Jour noted, “Silhouettes blends dark emotions and weighty lyrics with beautiful harmonies and a haunting keyboard.”

 

LISTEN TO SILHOUTTES:

Since forming Aquilo in 2014, Ben Fletcher and Tom Higham have released a handful of widely acclaimed EPs, which have racked up more than 50 million streams cumulatively on Spotify. Aquilo’s songs have been heard in numerous ads, film trailers and major televisions shows, including “The Vampire Diaries,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Pretty Little Liars” and others.

Fletcher and Higham give fans an inside look at the making of Silhouettes in this video. The pair reunited with U.K. Music Video Awards-winning director Eoin Glaister to create videos for a trio of songs from Silhouettes. They feature Perry Benson, known for his roles in This Is England and Sid & Nancy, the young actor Ruairi O’Connor (What Richard Did, Handsome Devil) and newcomer Emily Reid.
