The five tracks released today as part of ii (Side A) marks the bold decision to split the album into two halves and is Aquilo’s unique way of staying in tune with the streaming age. “We’re doing things differently,” explains Ben. “Streaming has changed how we all consume music. We still love the album format, but it needs updating. Releasing an album in two halves is our way of doing that.”
