UK duo Aquilo has announced their upcoming new album A Safe Place To Be, which will be out on October 15th. Along with the news, they’ve released a new track titled “A Safe Place To Be,” a gorgeously, rich piece that is built around homesickness and nostalgia. Inspired by the duo’s return to their hometown Silverdale from LA, “A Safe Place To Be” embraces one’s own roots and memories:
In their own words, “When we made this song it felt like a defining moment for us and the album. It was one of the first songs we made where it all clicked into place for the two of us. We started playing this melody on an old, dusty, out of tune piano. Within a few hours of going with the flow it just poured out! We hope it can do the same thing for people listening that it’s done for us.”
They further added, “To have ‘A Safe Place To Be’ finished and ready to release feels strange but in a good way. We’ve been working on this album on and off for 2 years and have been through so much in that time. Creatively we just needed to step away from making music after being sent to LA to write a ‘hit’. Cut to a year later, A Safe Place To Be was born.
We showed the music to a friend and creative director we’d worked with in the past (Charlie Drinkwater). We started working together on building a detailed model village based on our memories old and new. It’s set in the village we both grew up in and each song holds a place in that model village for the two of us.
That is our Safe Place To Be, our memories, our home town and songs all in one place. It really does feel like a new phase for the two of us. The start of something new. We’re just eager to get it out in the world.”
