Filled with songs that remind them of the past, the Silverdale-hailed duo curate a playlist full of nostalgic hits.
Taking us through a playlist full nostalgic hits is Silverdale-hailed duo Aquilo. Comprised of Tom Higham and Ben Fletcher, the dream-pop team first burst on to the scene with their self-titled 2014 EP, filled with raw beats and soothing vocal harmonies tied together for an organic sound.
They’ve kick-started their 2020 with hits such as “Sober” and “Just Asking”, and now the duo are taking us back in time with their old-school playlist, with songs that remind them of past events and feelings.
Check out the playlist below…
Konradsen – “Rodeo NO. 5”
This song has only just come out but has been will probably be a reminder of the Covid-19 disaster we’re in. It kind of marks the whole moment for me.
Whitney – “Valleys (My Love)”
I bought a VCR camera last summer and headed to Devon (South of England) with some Aussie friends and we just passed the camera around the whole time. The trip felt special and we put the footage together after and stuck this song over the top. They’ve sadly all headed back to Australia now so it takes me back to that special time.
Scott Matthews – “Eyes Wider Than Before”
My sister used to play this song when we were little in the car with the family. I’ve been to see him 3/4 times and will always be a fan. This one is special.
Unknown Mortal Orchestra – “So Good At Being Trouble”
This is quite possibly a perfect pop song.
Feist – “One Evening”
Obviously she’s a legend but this song is legendary! For some reason gives me Steely Dan vibes.
Max Richter – “On The Nature Of Daylight”
I’m a big sci-fi fan and this is a reoccurring song in the film Arrival, one of my faves.
The Vines – “Autumn Shade II”
Back when I was rocking a G-proof Sony portable CD player and I had this album on repeat. This song always stuck out to me and throws me back in time.
Radiohead – “Nude”
We’ve both had an unhealthy obsession with this band. Kind of hard to pick one song but this is something that’s definitely resonated with the two of us.
Kendrick Lamar – “Money Trees”
This might be one of my all-time favourite albums. Maybe not what you’d expect from someone who grew up in the Lake District. Again, hard to pick one so I did an eeny-meeny-miny-mo.
Jeff Buckley – “Grace”
I was lucky enough to grow up with this song. This dude is a massive inspiration to the two of us.
