An aura of mystique and curiosity surrounds the artist known as Aquila Young. Her music exudes warmth and charisma and there is an unwavering charm about her work. In her newly released EP, Distance Echoes, Young successfully combines instrumentals with light, airy vocals to produce a fresh alternative sound.
Young’s lyrics have a distinctive, upbeat quality that is not often found in the alt-rock sphere. The contrast between this type of lyricism and the heavy background instrumentals contributes to Young’s sound. Despite her small following, Young definitely has the potential to become a big name in the alternative landscape.
