The world I had once known no longer exists.

This is the fourth EP 'invisible wall' from the instrumental music band featuring a dark and cinematic sound, Anoice.

Because of the effects of the coronavirus, Anoice decided to cancel all upcoming tours and postpone releasing two new albums from two of their side projects, RiLF and Films. However, soon after, they began writing new works which they can only be expressed at a time like this.

This EP mainly consists of quiet and dark neo-classical songs such as 'inner voice' featuring Films, two vocalists who sing in their own originally created languages in the same named project, Films, and 'the fear' which features Calu, the vocalist of the electronica unit, Matryoshka. It also includes 'who's your enemy?', an exciting song that mixes a contemporary classical sound with instrumental rock, much like 'time' from their latest album 'Ghost in the Clocks'.

The EP 'invisible wall' is certainly not one for healing, but expressing the anger, sadness, and hate, as well as capturing the moment of entering the forthcoming new world.
