Aquilo is the coming together of Tom Higham and Ben Fletcher, two musicians geographically located in what is perfectly exemplified in their music, the Lake District village of Silverdale.

“Ravishingly refined electronica.[…] The type of soft, atmospheric music that helps you drift peacefully into another realm of your mind. Or if you’re heartbroken [it] works, too.” – The Guardian
