Since releasing their Human EP, electronic-soul duo Aquilo are scheduled to release another one. Expected to be released on June 1st, via B3SCI Records, the Calling Me EP has four brand new songs, including their first single, “Better Off Without You”.
Over a smooth-rolling rhythm of drums, a warm piano, and a saxophone crooning in the background, silky soul (almost sexy) vocals sing a melancholy tune about heartache and moving on from that love. It’s a little more uptempo than their previous offerings, and it still possesses such raw emotion and passion. While I love the whole song, my favorite part comes towards the end, when the instrumentation picks up a smidgen and the vocals go straight into ecstasy. Yesssss! Listen to the song below.
