Aquilo Create Glittering, Slow-drive Pop with "Calling Me" (stream)

by Geoff Nelson

Like a slightly more austere Wildcat! Wildcat!, Britain's Aquilo (or A Q U I L O for maximum visual impact) make a version of this same genre of glittering, slow-drive pop.
 

While flashing ode to the big tents under which James Blake, the xx and the Weekend have re-appropriated, and in some cases bastardized, the weird R&B fever that took hold in 2011, Aquilo show more interest in a cloud-clearing chorus on lead demo, “Calling Me”. It is bifurcated to be sure, verses at one timbre and refrain at another, but the design is an intentional dualism: at once elegant and memorable.
