Aquilo are an outfit who have become very good at producing the kind of dramatically-wrought neoclassical piano and cinematic vocal music that gets featured in major movies and TV shows (as indeed Aquino’s music has been). Silhouettes is their first full-length album, produced with the help of SOHN and Ólafur Arnalds. Out on Island.
5/10 Jack Customer review, 30th December 2017
Not bad, but not what I prefer musically. Too much added production. I was hoping it would be more stripped down with just the two of them on piano and guitar. That was my impression when I first found them after watching the videos on their Facebook page. Definitely a group that would be nice to see live, there was just too much production on the record for me to even get through it all. A little too poppy and not enough melancholy. Very talented duet though, not my cup of tea but I'm sure it will appeal to the wider masses.
