LISTEN: Aquilo - 'Sober' EP

Somehow, I've managed to go through life without listening to the first two Aquilo records (that is soon to be rectified) *but* I am absolutely adoring their new EP, Sober. After a couple of years away, Tom and Ben recently returned with a string of singles, racking up five million streams and making it seem like they had never been away. Their first release since going independent, showcasing their talents as producers, the EP was mixed by Andrew Sarlo (Big Thief, Bon Iver) and is an open, vulnerable piece of work, a narrative charting the end of a relationship, bridging the gap between records. 

Sharing the EP online last week, they wrote that "this EP is the product of us spending 2 years away from releasing music, travelling and learning more about ourselves, each other and what Aquilo actually is. We've felt anxious, stressed, nervous but more importantly excited to finally let this new stuff breathe."
