At an official SXSW showcase, the band played for an hour or so while the crowd jammed and  sang along to their slower tracks. The two main members are Tom Higham and Ben Fletcher, with Higham covering main vocals and Fletcher playing the piano. Both artists individually played in hard rock bands until collaborating to pursue softer electronica music with Aquilo in 2013. They will tour the United Kingdom in September, debuting their newest album “Silhouettes.”
