Aquilo are a musical duo from Silverdale, Lancashire, England: Tom Higham and Ben Fletcher. They have received attention in two articles in The Guardian and on the American indie music blog Pigeons & Planes. Their track "You There" was chosen for BBC Radio 1's playlist on 12 June 2014.
They performed "Calling Me" and "You There" on the BBC Introducing stage at the 2014 Glastonbury Festival 2014 on 28 June 2014. You there was included in the "Best Of BBC Introducing Stage" choices, and DIY described them as "Another highlight from the Introducing stage" and said that they "cast a hypnotising spell of harmonies and crashing waves over their audience". They are to play at the 2014 Kendal Calling festival.
Their music has been described as "soft, calm electro-pop" and "a ravishingly refined sort of dreamily sad electronica". Their song "You There" features in the trailer for 2014 independent drama Camp X-Ray.
On 8 December 2014, they released their second EP Human.
They appear on the BBC Radio 1 playlist for 2-8 February 2015, in the "In New Music We Trust List", as announced on Radio 1's official Facebook page on 28 January 2015.
On 5 March 2015, their collaboration with popular disc jockey Vanic, "Losing You," was released onto YouTube and Soundcloud. It has so far accumulated over 3.4 million 'plays' as of 2 January 2016.
