Track Premiere: Aquilo – “I Could Fight On A Wall”

Aquilo has been a staple at KCRW this past year (see: MBE performance, Looped and our SXSW showcase); today is no different, as we premiered a new track on MBE called “I Could Fight On A Wall.”

On first listen, it sounds like both Tom and Ben have felt the influence of their trips to California. The song is extremely dreamy, with a creative overlay of instruments that builds to a lush and beautiful crescendo of vocal layers.

Here’s Aquilo on the track:

“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 really. We don’t find ourselves writing positive songs often but for some reason this just came around.”

Their debut album Silhouettes was released about nine months ago and this track is a glimpse into what we might be able to expect from the duo.

Check out “I Could Fight On A Wall” below and see them on their next stop in Los Angeles, 10/16 @ the El Rey Theatre.
