Atmospheric UK pop duo Aquilo have returned with brand new single “I Could Fight On A Wall.” First premiered on KCRW yesterday, “I Could Fight On A Wall” is available for streaming and purchase HERE via Harvest Records. View the track visualizer on YouTube HERE.

The first new song to be heard since debut album Silhouettes was released in January of this year, “I Could Fight On A Wall” is the culmination of the band’s experiences of life on the road over past months and a taste of what’s to come as they further explore the dreamy electronic pop they’ve become known and loved for.

Tom and Ben of Aquilo say of the song, “We’d both spent a lot of time in America after releasing the first record. There were a few life changes we’d had to go through and we suppose in turn a lot of inspiration came from the same place.  “I Could Fight On A Wall” marks both of us finding confidence again through people we’d grown close to over that year. We don’t find ourselves writing positive songs often but for some reason this just came around.”
