Carlos Aquilué

Profile:
Carlos Aquilué is a musician born in Huesca. After an adolescence irrigated Hardcore and Punk, his tastes were expanding, to the point of joining so different formations like Kiev cuando nieva, Tresestrellas, and Will Spector & the Fatus. For years, virtually in secret, he has been forging this project that now he decided to expose. The music that Carlos Aquilué produced under the rubric of En. develops at a thoughtful pace. His themes are presented without pomposity, as if they had always been there, unfold quietly, without hurry to finish, let gone without a fuss. Its Sunday music: grounded in a proper leisure mood. En. is permeated by the supernal spirit of the Red House Painters, by the guitar mantras of David Pajo and Jim O’Rourke, the monumentality of Nick Drake’s bedroom, by the harmonic preciousness and mystique of the post-Pet Sounds Beach Boys. Each instrument is tightly dependent on the composition, no squeaks, nothing preponderates. Occasionally, a voice emerges dense and precise, as an organ, that shells melodies with strange sophistication. It is true that ENs music sometimes reflects subjective tensions, misted passages and lyrics of a febrile symbology. However, often appealing to a collective sense: titles like “Tu Sombra”, on the possibility of burying objects for future archaeologists, “Metros Cuadrados”, “Sol de Justicia”, “Asentamiento” seem to call a kind of dissolution of the subject in the community, a quest for recognition in the other. They find easy place in the memory like a treasured remembrance to be reactivated suddenly, as if you press a mnemonic spring, as if all regains a lost sense. A lovely company has come this Sunday and will stay overnight on our couch.
